General Disability Services
CPL (formerly known as the Cerebral Palsy League) stands for Choice, Passion and Life. We work with children and adults of all abilities, from low to high and complex support needs. We'll tailor our services to match your needs and goals, and then put together a support plan with you and your loved ones that will help you get there.
We have access to resources and equipment that's not always available in regional centres. This means we’re ready to support you! At CPL, we believe in living the life you choose with passion, everyday.
