World Cerebral Palsy Day is celebrated on Saturday 6th October 2018. The main aims of the day are to raise awareness of cerebral palsy. To ensure that children and adults with cerebral palsy are not discriminated against and receive the same rights and opportunities as the rest of our society, and also to celebrate the lives and achievements of those both who suffer from cerebral palsy and the individuals and organisations who support them.
Cerebral palsy is a lifelong disability affecting around 17 million people throughout the world. At this time there is no known cure. It is a complex disability that can vary in effect from one individual to another with symptoms ranging from weakness in one hand to a complete lack of voluntary movement throughout the body.
