The Centre for Cerebral Palsy is a charity, providing services and support to more than 1700 people living with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and their families throughout WA.
We have an annual operating budget in excess of $45 million, employ over 700 staff and in any given year we rely on the support we receive from more than 100 volunteers.
Since 1951, we have forged an enviable reputation as one of the leading disability service providers in our state, with significant leadership also at a national level. Over time, our ability to adapt in response to the changing needs of people with CP has ensured we remain at the forefront of service excellence.
We strive to ensure inclusion of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities in every facet of society.
Our vision is for a community in which all people freely exercise choice.
We aim to achieve this by providing a range of quality services and promoting choice in order to address the unique needs of the people that we work with.
These services include physiotherapy, speech pathology, occupational therapy, social work, psychology, early education, respite, health promotion, employment, alternatives to employment, accommodation support and recreation.
Specialised technology and equipment are often used in conjunction to improve the capacity of a person living with cerebral palsy to carry out daily activities and participate in their local community.
The Centre for Cerebral Palsy is registered under the Corporations Law and is a registered charity under the Charitable Collections Act of 1946. The Australian Taxation Office also endorses The Centre as a deductible gift recipient.
