Cerebral Palsy Midlands

A community centre for adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities

Cerebral palsy is a condition which is often thought to arise due to brain damage as a result of oxygen deprivation. This can occur before birth in the womb, during and after birth, usually within the first six months of life.

Cerebral Palsy Midlands is a Birmingham-based registered charity and community day-care centre in Harborne that empowers and supports people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

Whilst at the community day centre, its clients are taught vital life and independency skills to stay healthy and safe. These include things like cooking, personal hygiene, reading and writing skills, music, arts and crafts and much more.

The charity was established in 1947 when it set up the first school for children with cerebral palsy in England and Wales, Carlson House School.
