UP - The Adult Cerebral Palsy Movement is a community-led charity designed to empower, inform and support adults who suffer from Cerebral Palsy. We are the only UK charity for adults with Cerebral Palsy.
Our aim is for all adults with Cerebral Palsy to live their best lives. Our movement is about positively making the changes in ourselves, and in society, so that we can live our best lives. It is rooted in our belief in our own power, standing up for ourselves and our rights, and combatting ignorance, prejudice and indifference.
Cerebral Palsy is a lifelong condition that affects 130,000 adults in the UK. It is a condition which develops associated co-morbidities during adulthood and demands specialist care pathways. However, co-ordinated and specialist services do not exist today for adults with Cerebral Palsy. This lack of support results in worse health outcomes and, lower education and employment participation for individuals.
