Cerebral Palsy Register for Wales launches

A register of all Welsh people with cerebral palsy has been launched today at the Senedd.
The register will log details about the number and severity of cases in different areas of the country.
Cerebral Palsy is the most common disability affecting children in the UK, but in Wales little is known about the condition.
It’s caused by brain damage in early childhood but can exhibit various levels of symptoms.
The register aims to change all this. It will store information about the severity of cases in different areas of Wales so services can be targeted where they’re most needed.
A number of AMs supported the scheme including Conservative Mark Isherwood.
