We see potential – Introducing CPotential


Muswell Hill children’s charity The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy is delighted to announce that it has changed its name to CPotential.

Jo Honigmann, CEO of CPotential, says:

“Our new name reflects our approach in a clear and memorable way. It highlights our aim to support disabled children and adults to achieve their potential now – and in the future.

“You may have already seen the bright new signs over our local charity shops in Muswell Hill Broadway, Crouch End and Chapel Street Market and Essex Road in Islington.

“We are passionate about helping each child, regardless of their starting    point, to develop their abilities, independence and confidence. Our new strapline – Educating Enabling Exciting – captures this in a nutshell.           We believe that everyone has the potential to learn and we’re here to make that happen.”

The new name also marks CPotential’s plans to support more children and adults, both at its centre in Muswell Hill and more widely through outreach.

Jo says:

“We’ve been part of the Muswell Hill scene for 54 years now and we’re really grateful for all the support the local community continues to give us to enable us to deliver our life-changing work.”

CPotential offers a wide range of services based on Conductive Education, including Early Intervention sessions plus speech and language therapy and music therapy. It also offers free assessments for adults and children to try the Mollii Suit, an innovative assistive device, which can improve muscle control and alleviate spasticity.

And, not content with just one name change, the charity has also renamed its Department for Education approved independent special school and nursery for children aged 3-11 as Woodstar School.

This name was chosen to reflect not only the school’s leafy setting and new eco-friendly buildings planned but also the school’s firm belief that all its children are  stars.
