The Chinese Parents Association - Children with Disabilities Incorporated (CPA) is a non-profit, non-religious, incorporated charities organization established in 1988. It had been endorsed as a deductible gift recipient by the Australian Taxation Office since July 2001.
CPA believes that people with disabilities, irrespective of color, race or creed, should be treated equally and rightfully enjoy a rich and meaningful life as far as possible.
The overall management of CPA is the responsibility of the Management Committee which is formed by a group of parents with children with disabilities, affiliated members and ordinary members.
The Community Service Workers are CPA's staff who help in monitoring the projects and funding applications, promoting the services to the community, recruitment of volunteers, providing supports to parents (most of them are volunteers) and volunteers.
CPA offers various kinds of educational programs, social functions, seminars, sports and leisure activities, picnics and camping, and case work to the parents and their children with disabilities, and the community, especially to people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (people from Asian countries). Most of the services are run solely by volunteers, or professionals.
As a community, the one thing we want for our children is that they are happy and healthy. Unfortunately for thousands of children born with a disability, it can be Intellectual Disabilities or Physical Disabilities, and from the moment of diagnosis things will change the life of the individual and the families forever.
At Chinese Parents Association – Children With Disabilities Inc. (CPA) our mission is to brighten the lives of all children with disabilities and their families. CPA provide a range of services and support to people with disabilities and their families; as well as to promote a caring community for the optimal growth of people with disabilities. We support them throughout every Saturday by providing the opportunity to be distracted from the anxiety and stress of their everyday lives, and to simply be social and relax to experience special and to be together as a family enjoying activities.
CPA was founded and established by a group of passionate parents in 1988. These parents embraced a hope to help children with disabilities.Thus, an objective had been developed to provide a range of services specially needed for people with disabilities and their families. CPA has grown from strength to strength, from a small group of members to over 200 members today. Over the years we have seen our programs expand with concepts that are innovative, and unique. These programs include visual art, dance, music, cooking, crafts, bowling, ice skating, community / social outings, festival celebrations, seminars and information sessions.
CPA is now seen as an integral part in the social aspect of children with disabilities and has responsibility to continue to fund these amazing programs. We could not do this without the ongoing and generous support we receive from individuals, councils, community groups, small businesses and the corporate sector.
We have also benefited from the support of a passionate group of volunteers who have played an enormous role in making CPA what it is today and who are important to our future. These volunteers have given their time to be Management Committee members, fundraisers and to generally support our events, programs or administration. We truly appreciate every minute they have given which enables us to deliver more directly to the children and their families.
Once again, thank you for the generous donation, and for your ongoing support of our work.
