The Cerebral Palsy Foundation is a strong and powerful voice for the 17,000,000 people around the world with cerebral palsy and their families. We have global commitment to increasing awareness and support for cerebral palsy public policy, research and investment in order to improve health outcomes and quality of life.
We lead the way in educating and advocating for US federal funding for national cerebral palsy initiatives across the lifespan including the establishment of a national cerebral palsy research agenda, early detection and diagnosis, surveillance, translational research, adult care, genomics, physical activity, regenerative medicine and much more.

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation also partners with global entities including the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the United Nations to improve lives around the world. Awareness and Advocacy go hand in hand to create positive change. Our awareness initiatives, including US National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day and the #GoGreen4CP movement, highlight the critical public health need that there is much more to be done to improve long term outcomes and increase community support services so people with cerebral palsy can lead their very best lives.
