AdviceCo to be a major supporter of Cerebral Palsy Alliance expansion on the Central Coast Posted on January 20, 2021
Cerebral Palsy Alliance has a therapy center in Tuggerah that is bursting at the seams. Those who require support on the Coast far outnumber the capacity of the facility, so it is with great excitement that an additional new therapy center is being established on Karalta Rd, Erina.
It is supported by a number of generous individual donations, and a $10,000 dollar-match program by AdviceCo, and our partner: the Count Charitable Foundation.
Set to be opened on 8 March 2021, 180 families from the southern end of the coast will be able to access services from the more conveniently located facility, reducing travel times and increasing access to therapists.
Why it is so important:
Every 20 hours, an Australian baby is born with cerebral palsy. It is the most common physical disability in childhood that is ‘incurable’, yet not unchanging.
Early and frequent therapy can mean the difference between a life of emotional and physical hardship, and a quality of life filled with hope, progress and happiness for the whole family.
It can be difficult to convey the benefits of therapy in writing. Sarah, Isaac’s mum, does an incredible job of it in this 3-minute video. Please take some time to view it.
More help is needed:
To set the Erina center up with the necessary bespoke equipment for the therapy intensive programs, physiotherapy, occupational, speech therapy and exercise physiology services, social skills programs, youth programs, and social and community supports, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance needs to raise a whopping $203, 500.
AdviceCo and the Count Charitable Foundation have joined forces to dollar match any donation up to the value of $10,000.
AdviceCo is a leading accountancy and financial planning firm on the Central Coast. 28 team members and Coasties are passionate about supporting the local area to be a place where everyone can thrive and enjoy life.
