Bobath Scotland has announced it will change name as it looks to expand its support

A charity which supports those with cerebral palsy has revealed its new name.

From next month, Bobath Scotland will be known as Cerebral Palsy Scotland.

The organisation has said the name change is aimed at increasing awareness of the condition across Scotland.

“Changing our name is one part of much wider work to increase awareness of cerebral palsy and enable us to reach everyone affected by cerebral palsy across the country,” said a statement from the charity.

“There is not enough support and services for families and individuals living with cerebral palsy. We hope our change of name will help us raise our game and close this gap so that every person with cerebral palsy can participate and achieve to the best of their ability – this is our key aim.

“The name Cerebral Palsy Scotland is also more reflective of the charity today. Providing therapy using the Bobath concept is still the core of what we do, and our superb team of therapists will continue to offer individual therapy to children and adults and run our many therapist-led groups.”

The charity has said it wants to expand its online resources, create more opportunities for those with cerebral palsy to meet each other and influence policy so that life improves for those with the condition. The new brand will go live on 1 April.
