The costs of living with Cerebral Palsy

We know the impact of CP varies, and the support required varies too. We want to gain some insights into the out of pocket costs and financial strain associated with living with CP.

This study aims to quantify and report on the out of pocket costs of living with cerebral palsy, and the level of financial stress for families and individuals living with cerebral palsy.

We envisage the report created from this research will promote policy changes, as well as provide families and organisations with a tool to advocate for more funding.

We would like to hear from both individuals living with CP, and families or carers of people living with CP.

Eligibility

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • are living with cerebral palsy in Australia
