FAQ's On CP Teens UK Events:
Q: What is the 'Social Series'?
A: The Social Series travels the country enabling 'CP Teens' from all over
to get involved. The format is an activity (e.g. bowling) followed by a
meal. The activity is always free for each 'CP Teen' and a +1. In addition,
each 'CP Teen' and their +1 can claim up to £25 following the event to
go towards their meal/travel costs.
Q: Do I need to reserve a space for myself/my 'CP Teen'?
A: Yes! Always. We have limited capacity and everything is organised &
booked in advance. Each event will have its own deadline for
registration, or to buy tickets (Quiz & Ball). Please ensure you've
followed the instructions for each event to ensure you have booked
your space or ticket. Please don't just turn up - unfortunately we will
have to send you/your child away!
Q: Is there an age range/limit?
A: Yes. Although there is no lower age limit, for safeguarding reasons CP
Teens UK cannot allow anyone 26-years-old or above to attend events
(with the exception of parents/carers/PA's etc. attending to assist).
However, the Ball, the Quiz and any other fundraising event for CP
Teens UK event are open to the general public to attend as well as
our service users and their families. At such events, 'CP Teens' can
benefit from a reduced price ticket, usually half price, from the
general sale price.
Q: Can I/my 'CP Teen' attend alone?
A: It depends. If you/your child requires 1-2-1 support/personal care/
moving & handling/medication or would be likely to have a medical
problem during the event (e.g. a seizure), we insist that you/they are
accompanied by a parent/carer/PA for all events.
For the Social Series, we allow 'CP Teens' who are 16-17 years old to
attend alone as long as they don't fall into the above criteria and
their parent/guardian signs a permission form. All under 16's must
be accompanied by a parent/carer/PA. We are able to provide
minimal assistance, e.g. carrying food and drinks/cutting up, helping
to order food and drinks, tying/changing shoes for bowling etc.
For the Ball, the Quiz and any other event open to the general public,
we insist that all under 18's are accompanied by a parent/carer/PA
regardless of ability.
18's and over are welcome to attend all events alone provided they
don't fall into the above criteria and are fully able to physically look
Q: Are the events accessible?
A: Yes, we always book accessible venues. The only time we cannot
guarantee accessibility is when organisations & companies hold
fundraising events for CP Teens UK - these are not events put on by
CP Teens UK and therefore we unfortunately have no say over venues.
Q: I want to come to the Ball, but how accessible is the hotel?
A: Very! In fact the Casa Hotel has won awards for its accessibility.
Wheelchair friendly bedrooms with walk-in wetrooms are available.
The hotel is newly built, spacious and has lifts to all floors. Don't
forget to ask for the special CP Teens UK bed & breakfast discount
too (available the night of the Ball, code obtained once you have
booked Ball tickets).
Q: I/my child doesn't have Cerebral Palsy but it's for 'CP Teens'?
A: We welcome all young people with a wide range of physical
disabilities, it is most definitely not just for Cerebral Palsy.
Q: You only cater for +1's on the Social Series, but I/my child
requires more support than just a +1, what can I do?
A: No problem at all. In such circumstances, the relevant activity can be
funded for additional people to enable you/your child to participate.
The £25 to go towards the meal/travel costs can also be reviewed
and it is possible to claim back a higher amount in some
circumstances. However, it must be brought up at time of booking a
space otherwise it will be assumed that only a +1 is attending.
If you would like to bring more than a +1 for social or other reasons,
you are welcome to do so, however you must mention it at time of
booking and you must cover the cost of the activity for them and you
cannot claim anything back towards the cost of their meal or travel.
