2017/10/06 All day

World Cerebral Palsy Day is a movement of people with cerebral palsy and their families, and the organisations that support them, in more than 60 countries. The vision is to ensure that children and adults with cerebral palsy (CP) have the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else in our society. It is only together, that we can make that happen.

World Cerebral Palsy (CP) Day is Friday 6 October in 2017. More than just an awareness day, it is an opportunity to: 1. Celebrate and express pride in the lives and achievements of those with CP and the people and the organisations that support them 2. Create a powerful voice for those with CP to change their world 3. Connect organisations across the globe so they are better equipped to meet the needs of those with CP 4. Create new solutions to everyday problems 5. Act as a catalyst for social change and education campaigns that create solutions to universal challenges 6. Produce tangible, actions and outcomes that measurably improve the lives of those with CP 7. Raise awareness of CP and the issues that affect people with CP at a local, national and international level to create more inclusive societies. The project is coordinated by the World Cerebral Palsy Initiative, a group of non-profit cerebral palsy organisations with a global vision to create real change for people living with CP.
