Bobath course comes to Scotland with help from Baillie Gifford

For people with cerebral palsy, getting specialist help when it matters most can be life changing. Bobath Scotland will be providing up to 24 places for Scottish allied health professionals and doctors to complete the Basic Bobath Foundation Course. 

Places will be funded by Bobath Scotland with support from Baillie Gifford.   

Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that affects muscle control and movement. It’s the most common childhood disability and there around 13,000 people in Scotland who live with the condition.

For people with cerebral palsy, getting specialist help when it matters most can be life changing. For this to be possible there needs to be enough people with the right skills. However, there are too few people in Scotland with the specialist knowledge required. Bobath Scotland, with sponsorship from Baillie Gifford, will bring the Bobath course to Scotland and make it available free of charge to 18 to 24 health professionals.

Founded in 1908, Baillie Gifford is one of the UK’s largest active investment management firms. Baillie Gifford places great emphasis on corporate philanthropy and supporting society as a whole, working with a wide range of organisations to make Scotland a better place to live, work and visit.
