Who we are

Who we are

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

  • We are world leaders in cerebral palsy research, and the world’s largest private funder of cerebral palsy research
  • Our research informs our world-class interventions and service
  • Our global disability tech accelerator program, Remarkable, is unlocking the potential of technology to drive greater inclusion for people with disability
  • We use our influence to bring together communities in advocating for 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. Together with our clients, 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 a reality. 

This is what happens when great minds think differently.

Our Mission

We deliver world-class services, community advocacy and policy influence, training, global research and the advancement of enabling technology.
