CPotential (the new name for the London Centre for Children with Cerebal Palsy) is a registered charity based in North London. It offers life-changing learning to help disabled children grow in confidence, skills and independence so that they can achieve their potential.


It mainly works with children who have movement disorders due to conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, global development delay or Down’s Syndrome. Some of the children have additional difficulties with sensory processing or communication.

CPotential offers Conductive Education sessions and a range of integrated therapies including speech and language therapy, music therapy and occupational therapy. It also runs Woodstar School, its own independent special primary school and nursery class, where the pupils enjoy a fun and practical ‘Learning for Living’ Active Education Curriculum.

It also provides support and information for parents and offers free assessments for adults and children to try the Mollii Suit assistive device, designed to alleviate spasticity and improve muscle tone to make everyday life easier.

CPotential says “Everyone has the potential to learn – and we’re here to make that happen.”
