Transition to high school or to adulthood can be challenging for any young person. For those with cerebral palsy it can be overwhelming. We will support 4 young people to gain as much independence and self-esteem as possible in order to transition more smoothly to the next stage in their lives.
It ran from 12:00 PM, 27 November 2018 to 12:00 PM, 4 December 2018

A lack of resource means that young people who have cerebral palsy are often left to struggle on their own without help or therapeutic input at a vital stage of their lives. In response to a recent survey, one of our teens said: ‚ÄòI am already having very little help and will have none as an adult. This will have a detrimental effect on my independence.‚Äô Increasing their independence will help these young people to fulfil their potential and participate more in everyday life.
With this funding, we will be able to give young people ‚Äòtime‚Äô - to explore what they currently find challenging, to listen to their personal aspirations and to work together to meet their challenges. They may want to be able to make a cup of tea without spilling it, do up the buttons on their school shirt or use a key in their front door. As specialists in cerebral palsy we have the knowledge and expertise to help the young people achieve their goals.
