Cerebral Palsy Alliance has been the beneficiary of two funding partnerships with Greater Charitable Foundation. From 2011-2016, funding supported the Ignition, Ignition Lite and Emerge Mentoring programs, pairing Greater Bank employees with teenagers and young adults living with cerebral palsy and related physical disabilities. The programs helped participants learn new skills, gain more confidence and prepare themselves for continued study or employment. More than 50 Greater Bank staff volunteered their time as mentors, giving close to 700 hours each year to the program.
Between 2017 and 2020, Greater Charitable Foundation Funding supported the Early Response Therapy Program for babies at risk of cerebral palsy in NSW. The program provides early intervention and care to babies diagnosed with cerebral palsy or diagnosed at risk of cerebral palsy (CP), and their families, in the critical first year of the baby’s life.
