Further support this year has included The Cadbury Foundation supporting CPM with a £3,000 grant towards supporting Health and Well-being within the centre to help our disabled adults in our community and develop our services. Read more. 
 
Here is an update on the CPM vs Warwickshire Bears Wheelchair Basketball charity match taking place at Warwick Sport Centre on Sunday 26th March between 1 and 3pm. Firstly we want to thank all of those who have put themselves forward to play and to all those who are supporting our players and helping us fundraise for Cerebral Palsy Midlands.

WANTED! Registered charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands need a minimum of twelve people (male or female) to take part in a Wheelchair Basket Ball fundraiser charity match on Sunday 26th March 2017 between 1 and 3pm. This event has been organised by Mondelez Interntaional Community Champion Michael Huggins who knows our charity well through friends at relatives who are based at Cadbury's Bournville. This is a great way for us to raise awareness about all the great work we do at Cerebral Palsy Midlands and to raise money towards supporting our services. 
Today at CPM we have had an amazing afternoon with Elms Music Group who bought a musical workshop to the centre. Everyone had the chance to join in singing or playing musical instruments to some great well known modern and old songs. 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands together with Sociability Care organised today's support group session for 'Looking Forward' to be focussed on self care. Reiki and relaxation specialist Sarah Louise Rowlands was bought in to talk to parents, carers, staff and clients about the importance of looking after ourselves. 
 
The Cadbury Foundation have donated £3,000 to make a real difference and support a local Birmingham charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) with their health and wellbeing development for adults with substantial or critical need. Mondelez International employee Malcolm Lilly, daughter of Victoria Lilly who attends the centre, nominated CPM for the Cadbury Foundation grant as a worthwhile charity close to his heart. 
Ember Inn's pub, The Bulls Head in Hall Green have continued to support the charitable work at Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) in Harborne. As their nominated registered charity, customers have been contributing their change to keep a regular flow of donations supporting CPM. 
This afternoon at Cerebral Palsy Midlands we had a visit from a lovely lady called Anika she was from Deafblind UK an organisation that supports people with sight and hearing impairments. This is a great organisation that gives its members support advice and access to resources to help them to enjoy and live life as independently as they can. During the presentation, I learned that many members of Deafblind UK are also affected by a range of other disabilities, this is similar to many of the people here at Cerebral Palsy Midlands. 
FREE workshop available for parents, caregivers and care professionals Thursday 9th February with Sainsbury's Inclusive Community Training Programme at Midland Mencap, Kennedy House B29 5TE between 6 & 9pm. This is a creative and informative workshop designed to improve the skills & confidence of those who can support disabled people to be more active. 
Today the new 'Looking Forward' support network group organised by Sociability Care and Cerebral Palsy Midlands met at the CPM centre in Harborne for an informal chat over tea and cake about how future meet ups and the group would be shaped moving forward. The group felt it was key to have a focus at the next meeting around self-care, health and well being for carers. We agreed that we need to be strong and health both physically and mentally to be caregivers and help others in our roles. The next meeting will take place on Thursday 9th February at 10.00am and we will look for someone to perhaps come in and show us a method we can use to look after ourselves, whether that is through meditation, breathing, tai-chi or exercise.
