Questions? Come along to a free online Wills information Session to find out the basics of Will writing and have your questions answered by a solicitor.

During the month of April, you can write or update your Will online for free with Safewill. This offer is also extended to your family and friends. CPA is partnering with Safewill, a trusted online Will-writing platform that shares our vision of a world of opportunity for people with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities.

To help with the basics of writing a Will, we invite you to attend a free online 'Wills information session' at lunchtime on Wednesday 19 April at 12 noon. This includes a Q&A with a Safewill solicitor so your questions can be directly answered. 

Donations through gifts in Wills have enabled us to break new ground in cerebral palsy research, therapy and innovation. Our Research Foundation was established in 2005 thanks to a generous gift in Will.

Today Australia has one of the lowest rates of cerebral palsy in the world. The latest Australian Cerebral Palsy Register report released early this year details a sustained 40% decline in the rate of cerebral palsy in Australia (from 1 in 400 births during the mid-1990s to 1 in 700 births in 2016). The severity of cerebral palsy has also declined, resulting in less children with CP having epilepsy or intellectual impairment, and more children with CP able to walk and talk.

Congenital CMV is the most common infectious cause of disability in newborn babies. While CMV is harmless to most people with healthy immune systems, in pregnancy the virus can cause damage to a baby’s developing brain.
