APS Benevolent Fund
The APS Benevolent Fund makes so many wishes come true at the Cerebral Palsy Education Centre (CPEC). Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in Australia and the most expensive to manage. CPEC provides physical, occupational and speech therapy to children, training to parents as well as enabling children and families to access the essential equipment they need in their daily lives.
The APS Benevolent Fund has granted a Christmas wish of major proportions to CPEC. Equipment and resources are critical in the provision of support for the kids and families at CPEC. Physiotherapy costs to the value of $56,220.00, occupational therapy costs to the value of $8,423.50, speech pathology costs to the value of $25,524.00 and parent training to the value of $47,461.70 brings a Christmas wish for the kids at CPEC to $137,629.20. Merry Christmas to all at CPEC, including the kids, the staff and volunteers and the families who give so much of their time.
The APS Benevolent Fund has donated funding to supply these resources.
The APS Benevolent Fund is a registered charity and a deductible gift recipient. Any donations (above $2) are tax deductible.
The Fund is administered by the staff of the APS Benefits Group. All costs of maintaining the Fund are borne by the Group, so that people making donations are assured that every dollar is used to fund benevolent projects.
