World Cerebral Palsy Day seeks to bring awareness and support for those living with cerebral palsy. Cerebral Palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance. Cerebral Palsy is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain. Cerebral Palsy affects more than 1 billion people each year. A study found that about 3 in every 1000 children in the UK are born with cerebral palsy. It was also estimated that there are currently 30,000 children in the UK with cerebral palsy.
