Volunteer Charity CPEC

What is CP and who is CPEC?

Imagine being handed a non-curable diagnosis for your child that suddenly changes your lives from that moment on – where simple ‘givens’ like walking, talking, eating or going to school are suddenly unknown…

This is the reality for many parents who have a child born with Cerebral Palsy. Described by families as a “place of hope”, CPEC (Cerebral Palsy Education Centre) is a not-for-profit charity that provides World-leading programs to help children, adults and families living with cerebral palsy and similar neurological conditions that result in movement challenges, learn essential life skills and live life to the fullest.

CPEC provides over 11,000 hours of therapy a year and uses leading-edge technology to ensure each individual reaches their potential, no matter how severe their disability. Services are designed to be embedded into everyday life activities, with our motto of “learning for life”.    

Providing our life-changing programs and equipment costs over $2,000,000 each year. With no direct government funding and a growing demand for our services, we need your help to continue to support our children and families. The cost of ongoing training and mentoring a therapist to support complex disabilities like cerebral palsy is $10,000 per year. 

There are many ways you can support CPEC – so please, fundraise for us in the 2023 Nike Melbourne Marathon, help us on the day by becoming a volunteer, or make a direct donation now.

Wishing you all the best, our heartfelt thanks and good luck!
