UGANDA NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CEREBRAL PALSY

We offer community support services; these are a great services for new parents to get tips and advice from those who have already been through many of the early struggles of raising a child with cerebral palsy. By talking with people who have been in your shoes, parents and caregivers come out feeling more prepared for their family’s future.

  • As a network organization, we support parents/caregivers of children with Cerebral palsy to form support groups which help to:

  • Relieve stress and frustration.

  • Offer hope and an optimistic perspective.

  • Let families know that their struggles are not uncommon.

  • Find reassurance and understanding.

  • Provide a platform to share obstacles and achievements.

  • We ensure that families and children with CP have access to support through our community network supported by parents/caregivers groups. We match experienced, trained “Support Parents” with families in need. The groups are typically started and led by parents/caregivers of children with CP.

  • Through our community based services, we promote reliable -sustainable basic quality health home care services for children with CP within their communities.
