Happy holidays

Holiday closure and reopen dates 2023-24

Thank you for your continued support this year. Here are some highlights of what we have achieved together, and information on our holiday season closure and reopen dates for 2023/24.

As we head towards the end of another busy year, I want to thank you for your support in 2023.

Over the last twelve months, CPA has supported more than 5,000 clients and their families, opened our third Early Diagnosis Clinic, in Croudace Bay, and launched MyCPA, our new mobile app. Our teams at the CPA Research Institute continued to set the global standard for cerebral palsy research, publishing over 70 academic papers and releasing the 2023 Australian Cerebral Palsy Register (ACPR) Report. The report confirmed a sustained 40% decrease in the birth rate of cerebral palsy over a 20-year period, cementing Australia’s global leadership in the field of cerebral palsy research.

And through the generosity of our supporters – including raising more than $8million during STEPtember and volunteers contributing more than 10,000 hours – we will continue to build brighter futures for people with cerebral palsy.

The infographic below highlights some of our impact in 2023.
