Cerebral Palsy Midlands’ mission is to empower people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities from across the West Midlands region.

The charity offers support and therapy to children with cerebral palsy. They provide specialist therapy to children who have cerebral palsy and/or other allied neurological conditions from birth up to the age of 18. Therapy may consist of a single session or may be intensive which means that your child will attend several sessions a week over a number of weeks.

There is also a Family Support Service designed to make sure that families feel supported and empowered to help child in the best way possible. The Family Support Service is led by Glenys Evans, herself a parent of Tom, now 37, who has cerebral palsy. Through her own personal experience and through listening to many families, Glenys really understands the emotional journey of parents, and the day to day stresses. Her experience and training means that she will listen and talk you through issues whether emotional, practical or financial; she is always happy to help.
