Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) are really pleased to have our artwork exhibited in the local Harborne community at Booboo Café. 
The work was exhibited as part of this year’s Harborne Artsmile that took place Saturday 30th September. There were all sorts of interactive art activities across the Harborne High Street from Harborne Swimming Baths to Computeraccount at the other end of the High Street. 
Booboo Cafe have enjoyed having a collection of our artwork up on their walls and have continued to keep the exhibit a little longer. This helps us raise awareness for our charity and showcase the talent we have here at our centre. 
Starting Thursday 2nd November between 10am and 12am and to then run sessions every week from there on Cerebral Palsy Midlands brings you Wheelchair Dance sessions.

Pathfinders social club runs onec a month at Cerebral Palsy Midlands. Its main aim is to create social opportunities and combat isolation for adults with disabilities.

Every Thursday our VeraNic artists get arty and inspired. We thought we would share their developments with you.

Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability and is probably the most least understood. That's why today we at Cerebral Palsy Midlands are celebrating World Cerebral Palsy Day today on Friday 6th October to help raise awareness and to try and create positive change within our communities so that people with CP can have the same rights, access and opportunities as everyone else in society. 
There are over 17 million people living with CP and 350 million family, friends and supporters who care about them. Today we spoke about the challenges that our citizens face. 
CPM have an exciting opportunity to be selected for a £2,000 grant courtesy of Love Brum if we get enough votes. We need your help!
