In its 60th year, The Centre for Cerebral Palsy proudly celebrated the potential and the creation of possibilities for people with CP and like disabilities through a wide range of services and activities.
One of these special activities was Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week (CP Week) which is celebrated annually, during the first week of August.
Last year, 2011 CP Week celebrated the possibilities being created by and for people with CP and like disabilities and the achievements and milestones that are now not only being dreamed but realised.
The 2011 celebrations were particularly special as The Centre celebrated a milestone of its own - its 60th anniversary.
A series of events took place throughout WA to mark CP Week. To view images from the week see the events list below:
