2020 Events

Get involved, HAVE FUN, MAKE FRIENDS!

Due to COVID-19 unfortunately all planned CP Teens UK events have either been cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future. We are very sorry for any disappointment or inconvenience caused. However the health & safety of our service users and their families is of top priority.

We will continue to monitor the situation and we very much look forward to being able to bring our events back once it is safe to do so and we can't wait to see you all again!

In the meantime, please check out our virtual events below. We know a virtual event doesn't compare to a 'real' event for many, but we hope it fills a hole and helps through these difficult times.

Got a suggestion for a virtual event? Please email office@cpteensuk.org

#NoBangs Bonfire Night

Thursday 5th November 2020

Every year Bonfire Night can be problematical for people with Cerebral Palsy due to having a startle reflex (medical term - moro reflex). Everybody is born with a moro reflex but usually outgrow it by 6-months-old. Typically people with Cerebral Palsy do not outgrow the moro reflex due to the damage in the brain.

 

- Order your FREE pamper pack from CP Teens UK (male & female available) here: https://forms.gle/aYJ3EoehxamK2yHn6

 

- On Bonfire Night, get cosy, shut your curtains, turn the music/TV on and get stuck into your pamper pack!

 

- Join the conversation on social media using #NoBangsBonfireNight and include photos!

World CP DAY VIRTUAL SOCIAL

Tuesday 6th October, 5-6pm

We are bringing back our popular virtual catch up on Tuesday 6th October, World CP Day at 5pm – 6pm.  

 

CP Sport and CP Teens UK are joining forces once again following the popular ‘coffee and chat’ lockdown series from May - September. This will be a chance to 'meet' up with other people with Cerebral Palsy aged 13-25. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian please. 

It is World CP Day so please wear green if you can (the colour associated with Cerebral Palsy awareness). If you are getting involved in Move As One at 1pm, we’d love to hear what activity you did, and we also want to hear about how you Make Your Mark.
