We had a lovely visitor at our Summer Sizzler on Monday 20th August here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands, thank you Lola. 
 
Lola is a 6 ½ year old Shih Tzu Pet’s as Therapy dog, Pet’s as Therapy enhances health and wellbeing in the community through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. 
 
With her owners Karl & Michele, Lola visits venues in the community such as Cerebral Palsy Midlands and Age Concern both based in Harborne. Lola is very friendly and loves visiting the centres to make lots of new friends and she always enjoys all of the fuss she gets when there.

Yesterday, Wednesday 22nd August some of our citizens from Cerebral Palsy Midlands had the great opportunity of meeting Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, Councillor Paulette Hamilton.  
 
This meeting was to acknowledge all of the work that has been done together with Birmingham City Council, local Councillors, our citizens, other disabled members of the community, our community day-care centre Cerebral Palsy Midlands and many other organisations in the local area. Together, we all have been working on a 'Co-production', that being, a partnership to improve the support services for adults who live in our community. It's a big project, lots of great work has been acheived and there is of course more to be done.  
 
Yesterday, Councillor Hamilton acknowledged the time and effort that our people had given to the project, as of course, this will help the developments and improvements that take place in our city. 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) support National Citizen Service (NCS) The Challenge Network in Birmingham who offer short courses to young adults aged 17 years-old. NCS offer a 3-4 week experience that helps build a young person and their confidence to better prepare them for life. They get to live away from home, develop skills and meet amazing people. Included in the course is a three day placement at a charity organisation like ourselves, where they get to work with disabled adults, develop their work experience, enhance their communication skills and organise events.
