Cerebral Palsy webinar shines light on support

Event brought together charities, key professionals and families – watch it here



Charities and other key figures in the support of families and individuals affected by Cerebral Palsy came together for discussion and debate in a recent webinar.

The event shone a light on the work of seven key charities from across the UK and discussed the importance of such support for families.

The webinar, hosted by NR Times and Slater and Gordon, also provided a forum for debate and discussion, with representatives from each charity being present to answer questions, alongside lawyers, midwives and nurses from the law firm.

The work of seven charities was showcased – CPotential, Cerebral Palsy Cymru, Cerebral Palsy Plus, Heel and Toe, National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre, The Pace Centre and Stick n Step.

Watched live by scores of attendees, the event – held to mark Cerebral Palsy Month – helped to raise awareness of the work of the charities and the resources on offer to those who need them.

Emma Doughty, head of clinical negligence at Slater and Gordon, hosted the webinar.

“We were delighted to co-host this webinar with NR Times, to show our continued support for the amazing charities who provide essential services to those with Cerebral Palsy and their families,” she said.

Deborah Johnson, editor of NR Times, added: “This was a brilliant event which brought together key figures working across the field of Cerebral Palsy, and stimulated a very interesting and important debate among professionals and families alike.

“We were very pleased to join with Slater and Gordon to host this webinar and would urge anyone with an interest in Cerebral Palsy, whether personal or professional, to watch.”
