About us

Cerebral Palsy Alliance is a ground-breaking, global centre of expertise for cerebral palsy research, advocacy, intervention and assistive technology innovation.

As the world’s largest private funder of cerebral palsy research, we bring together a powerful alliance of great minds.

  • Our global research informs our world-class interventions
  • Our unique accelerator program, Remarkable, is unlocking the potential of technology to drive greater inclusion for people with disability
  • Our influence brings together communities and countries in effecting change.

For over 75 years, we have been driven by our founders’ vision of a future where nothing is impossible for people with cerebral palsy and similar conditions. Today, together with the thousands of Australian families we support, the 17million+ global cerebral palsy community, our 2500+ employees and 150,000+ donors, fundraisers and entrepreneurs, we are contributing to solving the next set of impossibilities.

We believe that one person can have an idea, but it takes different skills and the knowledge of many people to make that idea become real.

This is what happens when great minds think differently.

This is Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
