About the charity

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation

People with cerebral palsy rarely get the interventions and supports they need at the moments they need them. As such, their lives are often deeply and unnecessarily affected.

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation defines and addresses Moments of Impact – the times at which interventions and insights, if properly implemented, have the power to change lives.

CPF works to better understand how to effect change and implement it. They seek out the best thinkers to form collaborative networks which work together to bring about transformation.
