This March will signify Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month across the nation, with many charities, organisations and individuals bringing attention and a better understanding to the complex condition.
Throughout March, The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre will be hosting an array of events to support, educate and empower people with Cerebral Palsy, their families and people who wish to learn more about it, alongside utilising the hashtag #letstalkcerebralpalsy.
One of the Centre’s corporate sponsor’s has been integral to this programme of events, a representative says: ““We have been generously supported by our friends at JMW in putting together this programme of events for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. JMW’s medical negligence team has supported and worked with us for several years. They have also represented children and adults with cerebral palsy, as well as other conditions, for more than two decades. In that time they have secured countless lifelong care packages that have made an immeasurable difference to our community’s lives.”
Cerebral Palsy is caused by brain damage that happens at birth. Every year approximately 1,700 children are diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, making it the most common motor disability of childhood in the UK.
The month will include informative webinars for adults and families living with Cerebral Palsy, group support sessions for both adults and babies, and will be rounded off at the end of the month with a fabulous fundraising event starring talented comedian Rosie Jones.
The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre is based in Watford and provides individually tailored therapy and support for people with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological conditions. Taking a holistic approach, Bobath therapists look at the body as a whole to provide pioneering therapy that maximises an individual’s potential.
Madeleine Cassidy, CEO of The National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre says: “We are so glad we are able to provide these free and informative webinars and sessions for our community and those looking to learn more about the Bobath approach or Cerebral Palsy itself.
“It is our aim to empower and maximise the potential of our people and whilst we are all social distancing and many shielding, these accessible and informative events are a great way to provide support and information whilst staying safe.
“We hope as many people as possible living with Cerebral Palsy can benefit from these events and the continuing free services our charity will be providing. “
