Cerebral Palsy Midlands is a Birmingham based charity that has empowered and supported people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities since 1947, when we setup the first school in England and Wales for children with cerebral palsy.
Our current work is running a community centre in Harborne, Birmingham, where we provide work based training in Art and Music. The charity is run for, with and by people with Cerebral Palsy. Through its person centred core projects.
We run a life skills project, which enhances people's everyday skills in cooking, literacy, numeracy, IT, health and wellbeing. We also run a varied social events programme, which includes a monthly social club called Pathfinders
According to NHS figures, around 1 in 400 people in the UK today have some form of the condition. Some people's cerebral palsy does not necessarily affect them in their everyday lives, while other people may need a high level of care and support.Our charity aims to empower people in every aspect of their life, to support individuals in attaining greater everyday skills, and to help develop their unique talents.
Cerebral Palsy Midlands achieves this by following a person centred approach throughout its work, projects and services. It is human nature for individuals to strive to achieve success in their chosen field, as well as having recognition of this achievement. We fully believe that everyone has the right to be an active citizen, regardless of any disability they may have.
