National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre

We’re the National Bobath Cerebral Palsy Centre, a charity dedicated to supporting people of all ages living with cerebral palsy and similar neurological conditions.

 Our specialist treatment centre offers bespoke support from a team of physio, occupational and speech & language therapists, focused almost exclusively on cerebral palsy and so have a comprehensive understanding of the condition, in all its complex and various forms.

Training in therapy for cerebral palsy is an important aspect of our work and each year we offer a comprehensive schedule of courses to health professionals. This has allowed thousands of children, who are unable to travel to the centre, to benefit from the Bobath Approach in their local community.

Our charity was set up by the founders Mrs Berta Bobath FCSP and Dr Karel Bobath MD, FRCPsych in 1957 so last we celebrated our 65th year of supporting the cerebral palsy community.

We are at an exciting time in our growth, as we settle into our new centre in Watford and continue to expand our impact and improve the lives of children and adults with cerebral palsy.
