About CP Blogs

CP Blogs is a place for people with cerebral palsy (CP), and their family and friends, to come together to share their stories - the fun times and the difficult times - their tips, tricks and ideas.

Each of the blogs has its own unique character and will be full of interesting anecdotes and useful information. We'll cover the big picture and the little things that count in all our lives.

Most of all, we want to hear from YOU. Please take advantage of the comments button and share your thoughts… what's been your experience and what you've found helpful.

We believe in living live to the full, so please join in and make this your space on the web.

About CP

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a physical condition that affects movement.

It is caused by damage to the developing brain, usually before birth. There is no cure for cerebral palsy and for most, the cause is unknown. In Australia, it is estimated that a child is born with CP every 18 hours. Find out more about CP.

More than anything I am hoping you will come to recognise (if you haven't already), even with a disability, how our wonderful children are teaching us to stand up, be proud, look life in the eye and say, BRING IT ON!'
