Do you know someone with a Cerebral Palsied child?

When you meet parents of a child with cerebral palsy, try and see past the façade that everything is fine. Draw them out and let them talk about their difficulties.

Unless they ask for it, try not to offer advice. Do offer to give them a break away from their child, so they can have time with their other children.

Do not say, "Shame" or pray for the child to be healed. Rather pray for the family to have strength to cope. We all Donateneed to learn to accept the child with Cerebral Palsy as one of us.

Lack of support and fear of the unknown are the major challenges facing parents when they discover their baby has Cerebral Palsy.

While there are some wonderful Schools, such as Browns’ and Reunion, and some wonderful Centres such as CREST and CWAC, it is a very lonely road that parents must travel. Without facilities provided by organisations such as ours, it would be an impossible one.

That's why your support is so important – during Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week and all through the year.

Your generosity will help ensure that we can keep on supporting parents ... offering information, options, encouragement and understanding – and providing safe places where children with Cerebral Palsy can be cared for, and encouraged to reach their full potential.

So please will you make your donation now in honour of Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week?
