BBC South Today also carried the story and footage of The Rainbow Centre on their news this morning.

Action Cerebral Palsy are hoping to change the lives of children with cerebral palsy in the UK and with the New Children and Families Bill going through, the launch of the SEND Local Offer by each county council and the right to have Personal Health Budgets (PHB) created this is a wonderful opportunity.  Please share this link (www.actioncp.org) with your contacts and friends on social media (Facebook, Twitter etc) to help raise awareness of the Action Cerebral Palsy campaign and enable people affected to add their voice to the campaign.
