We had a fantastic 70th Anniversary Summer Sizzler on Monday 21st August, here are some images below to showcase our amazing day. 
 
This session, taking place on Thursday 27th July 2017 starting at 10.00am at Cerebral Palsy Midlands is for all parents, care professionals and for those with disability. 
 
This 'Looking Forward' parent & carer group session is an informal discussion about legal issues relevant to those affected by cerebral palsy, including Education and Healthcare Plans for children, access to community care for adults and legal help when things go wrong. Ann Houghton (http://www.anthonycollins.com/why-choose-us/meet-our-team/ann-houghton/), a solicitor at Anthony Collins Solicitors in Birmingham, will be visiting with her colleague, Nsiem Akhtar, a social worker, to talk about a wide range of legal issues including access to health and social care services (http://www.anthonycollins.com/who-we-help/individuals/community-care-claims/) and help when someone has been injured as a result of negligence (http://www.anthonycollins.com/who-we-help/individuals/medical-or-clinical-negligence/).

For many years Cerebral Palsy Midlands hads worked with National Citizen Service and The Challenge Birmingham to give young people experiences working in the charity sector and working with young adults with disability. 
This summer we are set to take in another 80 to 100 young people aged between 15 and 17 into our centre, to help them develop their skills for work, life and transition into adulthood.  
Groups come supporting different talents from drama, music, art, film, sports and media. Todays 'Enterprise' group came with a cake decorating activity that would create an opportunity to work with and communicate with our clients. We believe that these opportunities to come into our centre really do help young people develop their confidence, develop their social interaction and understanding and hopefully give them an opportunity to develop and strengthen their skills for the future.
