Funded and subsidised therapy for adults

Providing therapy using the Bobath concept is at the heart of what we do at Cerebral Palsy Scotland. We're currently offering funded and subsidised therapy sessions for adults with cerebral palsy living in Scotland.

Funded cerebral palsy specialist review

Our specialist review provides adults with cerebral palsy the opportunity to have an in-depth consultation with one of our specialist therapy team.

During the two-hour review, you will be able to discuss your cerebral palsy and how it's affecting you day-to-day, ask questions and identify current concerns or goals.

After the review, our therapists will liaise with your community health team to discuss what was learnt in the review. You will also receive a written report from us which provides a summary of what you discussed and worked on in the session, plus follow-up recommendations.

We are currently able to offer a number of funded cerebral palsy specialist reviews, thanks to a Scope Connecting Communities grant from the Communities Aid Foundation (CAF). 

To apply for a cerebral palsy specialist review, please contact us.

Subsidised therapy - Helping Hands

It is important for everyone to stay active, maintain mobility, reduce loss of function and avoid or reduce pain. This is especially true if you have cerebral palsy.

Thanks to Cerebral Palsy Scotland’s generous donors, the flexible Helping Hands programme allows adults to access therapy sessions with a specialist therapist at a discounted rate of £95 per session. 

It's possible to fund therapy sessions at Cerebral Palsy Scotland through Self-Directed Support.

Our personalised sessions focus on working together with a person to try and solve the physical things they’re finding challenging day-to-day because of their cerebral palsy.

Working with our specialist therapists can also help to highlight potential difficulties which can be addressed before they happen, or reduce the impact of a difficulty before it develops further.
