What is CP-Achieve?

CP-Achieve is a five-year program of research working to find ways to help adolescents and young adults with cerebral palsy live a full and healthy life.


CP-Achieve does research aiming to support people with cerebral palsy aged 10 to 30 years to achieve good health, access to excellent health services, and to participate in relationships, work, leisure, physical activity and the community.



The outcomes of CP-ACHIEVE will be to establish:

  • Rigorous population-based data about the scope of health and participation problems
  • Best practices and guidelines for health and disability service providers
  • A means to empower adolescents and young adults with CP to use health and community services
  • Models of cost-effectiveness to inform policy and practice, and drive value-enhanced care
