Media

We assist journalists from across Australia and overseas seeking the latest information and updates about ground breaking research into cerebral palsy prevention, cure and intervention.

This includes providing progress reports on Australian and global research projects; disseminating information about public health and prevention campaigns; promoting research studies seeking participants; as well as providing updates and content relating to fundraising activities vital to supporting ongoing research projects (eg Steptember campaign and Grace Gala).

Our aim is to keep journalists and the media fully informed about cerebral palsy research developments across the globe, including research projects funded by the Research Foundation of Cerebral Palsy Alliance and those awaiting vital funding to proceed.

We also provide media with:

  • Case studies involving children, families and adults living with cerebral palsy
  • Interview talent for specific research-related stories (including researchers, people living with cerebral palsy, and corporate partners)
  • Comment and statements about cerebral palsy, its impact on the Australian population and economy, and the vital role of research in shaping future impacts
  • Current facts and figures about cerebral palsy both within Australia and internationally
  • Information about how to support the Research Foundation to ensure continuation of vital research projects
