Celebrate Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week with us!

Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week (Sunday July 27 to Saturday 2 August) is a chance for us to celebrate and recognise the achievements of people with cerebral palsy, and take a bigger step towards creating an inclusive community for all.

Each year we kick off Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week (CPAW) with our fully accessible family fun day, Picnic in the Park, on Sunday 27 July at Roma Street Parkland.

During the week, our services hold a range of community events and activities across the state, from barbecues and sausage sizzles to hoedowns and musical performances.
Join in on the fun and help us raise awareness for people with disability!
