We used to be known as the Cerebral Palsy League, but now we’re CPL which stands for Choice, Passion and Life. We tailor our support services in homes, schools and communities to each client’s goals so they can live the life they choose with passion.
Would you like to know what it’s like to volunteer at CPL? Check out some of the wonderful stories shared by our talented team of volunteers across Qld. We have volunteer roles in companionship, sport, administration and much more!
We are always looking for volunteers to come and join our team, so we'd love to hear from you!
Are you a friendly and sociable person that can encourage children ages 0-18 to participate in a range of sports and recreational activities aligned with our physiotherapy programmes?
We’re looking for friendly, active volunteers to join our Allied Health team in Rockhampton.
