At CPL, we work with people of all ages to grow beyond expectations, seize new opportunities and do amazing things with their lives. We’ve got big ideas for your big plans and like you, we're not willing to settle for good enough.
Previously known as the Cerebral Palsy League, we changed our name to CPL which stands for Choice, Passion and Life – a sentiment that reflects everything we do.
In 1948, a group of parents decided they wanted more for their children living with disability and so they founded the Queensland Spastic Children’s Welfare League, which then went on to be known as the Spastic Welfare League of Queensland. Those parents worked tirelessly to raise awareness and funds to help their own and other children to experience the best in life.
In 1997, the Spastic Welfare League became the Cerebral Palsy League. The change reflected changing sentiments in the community and a rapid shift in the way we view and support people living with disability.
In 2018 the Cerebral Palsy League became CPL – Choice, Passion, Life. You’ve always known us as the Cerebral Palsy League, but thanks to your support we’re now able to do so much more. Our new name CPL – Choice, Passion, Life, was chosen because it’s what truly matters to us as an organisation. It's a name that reflects where we have come from, the way we work today and our aspirations for the future.
