About Us

The Cerebral Palsy Support Network (CPSN) is a not-for-profit organisation providing information and support services to people living with cerebral palsy and their families. We help empower individuals to lead more independent lives and provide support in a variety of ways to their families.

The CPSN office is based in Melbourne, Australia and offers people a number of programs and services throughout Victoria, which includes:

Cerebral Palsy Innovative Choices (CPIC)

The CPIC program gives you, the participant, and your family the freedom to control and coordinate your own support services. We provide you with what you need to make informed choices and then you choose your own carer based on your specific needs, for yourself or your loved one.

Care Centre

Our staff are trained to understand cerebral palsy specific issues and we aim to assist families and individuals of all ages. We offer phone support and information, consultation (face-to-face support), intake, access and referral. The CPSN also offers carer support groups which provide families with opportunities to meet other families in similar circumstances. 

Support Coordination

Support Coordination is about linking you with the right services. CPSN has a full time Support Coordinator who will discuss your needs and help you to find the right services from a wide range of providers. The Support Coordinator can help you coordinate a range of formal and informal supports and can also help assist with training so that you can find the right supports in the future. 

Plan Management

Plan management is to help you administer your NDIS plan. This can include paying service providers as well as completing and submitting some of the paperwork. CPSN will be transparent in handling your accounts so that you have ultimate control over your NDIS plan.
