Welcome to the JMW Cerebral Palsy Hub
At JMW, we understand that cerebral palsy can have a profound 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 hub.
The aim is to provide you with valuable information and support from our charity partners, our JMW team and CP campaigners and 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 about medical malpractice, contact us. We can support you through no win, no fee compensation claims.
