Welcome to the JMW Cerebral Palsy Centre

Cerebral palsy is the name for a group of lifelong conditions that affect muscle control, movement and co-ordination. It is usually caused by an injury to the brain that occurs before, during or soon after birth.

At JMW, we understand that cerebral palsy can have a truly devastating effect on a person's life. To support you, your family and loved ones who are affected by a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, we have created the JMW Cerebral Palsy centre.

The aim is to provide you with valuable information and support from our charity partners, our JMW team and CP campaigners / ambassadors. Here you can find information about cerebral palsy diagnosis, articles from people living with cp, and the various support groups available to you and your family.

If you have any questions, or would like to talk to our team please always feel free to contact us.
