A Snapshot Of The Cerebral Palsy Society

A recent database snapshot of the Cerebral Palsy Society has yielded interesting outcomes. One of the stats indicated to us that 56.2% of our members are under the age of 30, indicating that as an organisation, we are entering into an era of significant change. Other stats indicated that the needs of our members are also changing, and as an organisation we have a responsibility to attempt to fulfil them.
