HOW WE’VE STEPPED UP
For over a decade, we’ve been driving international research into the prevention, treatment and cure of cerebral palsy.
Granted to CP research
Supported research projects
But our work is far from over. Raising funds for cerebral palsy is now more important than ever. So, this year, we’ve recruited a team of STEPtember trainers to show you how to fundraise in creative and fun new ways.
PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY STEPTEMBER
The Foundation has committed to invest €1.5 million in a world first : a study to demonstrate whether intensive and playful rehabilitation can change the prognosis in very young children aged 1 to 4 years. This is the largest funding to date for a European clinical research project meeting the highest methodological criteria in this pathology.
DOCTORAL GRANT (2019-2021)
The Foundation is supporting the thesis of Lucas Ravault, a doctoral student, physiotherapist and holder of a master's degree in health engineering, to the tune of €104,000 over 3 years.
• Motor re-education/rehabilitation courses for children with cerebral palsy (CP) in French and European regions
SECOND CALL FOR BID MAJOR PROJECT (2020-2023)
The Foundation has launched a new call for major projects (budget to be financed: €1.5 million) devoted to the screening and early diagnosis of cerebral palsy and its complications, to intervene at a time when the brain is still best able to develop replacements.
The selected projects will be announced after STEPtember 2020.
IN 2020, SO FAR, WE HAVE RAISED
