love of humanity
Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful philanthropic partners, we continue driving our vision of a future where nothing is impossible for people with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities.
Philanthropy transforms lives by enabling access to early diagnosis and intervention, life changing technology, supports and opportunities not funded by NDIS, research into prevention, treatment, and cure for cerebral palsy, and advocacy to change the future.
We are deeply grateful for the incredible generosity that enables our mission to deliver a world of opportunity for people with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities, and their families.

Your impact in 2023 – thank you

Thank you to our wonderful philanthropic partners
