We provided a summer activity programme for 18 children and young people with cerebral palsy and related conditions.

The physically active and challenging programme, led by therapists, provided a variety of fun activities to promote functional postural and mobility skills through participation in sports and arts, thereby enabling the children and young people’s parents/carers to get a break and/or spend time with their siblings.
