Cerebral Palsy Alliance

Cerebral Palsy Alliance has been operating for over 70 years. The organisation was developed by a group of parents of children with cerebral palsy and was originally known as the Spastic Centre of New South Wales.

For over a decade they have also been driving international research into the prevention, treatment and cure of cerebral palsy through their CPA Research Foundation.

They are committed to improving outcomes for people with cerebral palsy through global research into prevention, treatment and cure. This is achieved through the Research Institute and Research Foundation of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Vision and mission

Cerebral Palsy Alliance's purpose is to help babies, children, teenagers and adults living with neurological and physical disabilities lead the most comfortable, independent and inclusive lives possible.

They imagine a world where people with disability are fully included, active and contributing members of society, realising their full potential. Technological innovation has the potential to reduce barriers and become a powerful driver of inclusion.

How Cerebral Palsy Alliance can help

Cerebral Palsy Alliance provides world-class services for people living with cerebral palsy and other physical and neurological disabilities including acquired brain injury, autism spectrum disorder, genetic conditions, global developmental delay, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease and stroke.
