In preparation for the European Parliament Elections 2024, Cerebral Palsy Europe has published a Manifesto for Cerebral Palsy, detailing how EU action – through legislation, standard-setting, funding or another form – makes a difference to the lives of the estimated 800,000 persons with cerebral palsy in the European Union.

summary of the manifesto for cerebral palsy

The manifesto is the result of a process of discussion starting with an online meeting as part of the Conference on the Future of Europe in early 2022. The principal drafters of the final document are two persons with CP: Matthieu Chatelin from France and Agnes Kojc from Slovenia.

The manifesto is available in the following languages:
