World Cerebral Palsy Day is observed on 6th October every year. WCPD provides an opportunity to: express pride for the lives and achievements of those with cerebral palsy (CP), and the people and the organizations that support them; create a powerful voice for persons affected with CP to change their surroundings; connect organizations across the globe concerned with this problem: create social change and education campaigns; raise awareness at a local, national and international level; produce tangible actions and outcomes to improve lives of people with CP.
All around the world, people and communities are adapting to big changes caused by COVID-19. People with cerebral palsy have the capability in dealing with change, breaking down barriers, and coming up with creative solutions their whole lives.
World Cerebral Palsy Day on 6 October was created by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance in 2012 and now brings together people living with cerebral palsy, their families, allies, supporters and organizations across more than 100 countries. All with the aim to ensure a future in which children and adults with cerebral palsy have the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else in our society.
