It currently costs around $32,000 per child per year for CPEC to supply our support services to children and their families. The government funds around ¼ of our costs, but parent fees, donations and fundraising are needed to meet the shortfall.
Most children with cerebral palsy also require specialized equipment to meet daily challenges such as walking, eating and communication. CPEC tries to financially help families by purchasing expensive equipment they can loan or trial, and covering the costs of some of their equipment where they can’t afford to do so.
All money donated to CPEC helps to cover the cost of supporting the children and their families who receive services from us. This is done through our therapy intervention programs where children learn practical skills and receive essential equipment that will enable them to reach the best of their abilities.
CPEC also provides training opportunities and workshops to therapists, teachers, and anyone working with children with cerebral palsy, to help them learn how to best support each child.
All donations $2 and over are tax deductible.
