All Party Parliamentary Group on Cerebral Palsy First Session
Scope, in partnership with Adult CP Hub, is sponsoring the next two sessions of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cerebral Palsy* https://connectpa.co.uk/appg-cerebral-palsy/.
There will be two sessions focused specifically on issues affecting adults with cerebral palsy followed by a written report which will make specific recommendations.
The first session is looking at:
Barriers for adults with Cerebral Palsy accessing and receiving healthcare that prevents them from ageing well and full life participation.
