About CPL - FAQs
What does CPL stand for?
You’ve always known us as the Cerebral Palsy League, but we’re now able to support people of all ages and abilities, which is why in 2014 we changed our name to CPL - Choice, Passion, Life. Our new name was chosen because it’s what truly matters to us as an organisation, and as a part of our community. We believe our new name reflects where we have come from, but is far more reflective of the way in which we work today and our aspirations for the future.
Do you support people with disabilities other than cerebral palsy?
