Sydney, 11 Aug 2017

The Macquarie Group Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Macquarie Group, has announced Cerebral Palsy Alliance as the recipient of the 2017 Macquarie Social Innovation Award.

The biennial Award recognises, promotes and rewards new ideas that work to meet pressing community social needs, alleviate disadvantage and promote social inclusion within Australia.

Cerebral Palsy Alliance will use the $100,000 Award to fund its 'Remarkable Accelerator Program', which provides seed funding and support to disruptive early stage start-ups, creating technologies to facilitate the social and economic inclusion of people with disabilities.

'Our vision is to maximise independence for people with disabilities through access to the latest technologies, specialised equipment and products that can enrich their lives,' said Rob White, Chief Executive Officer, Cerebral Palsy Alliance. 'This Award will enable us to provide four $20,000 grants over two years to disability tech focused start-ups. Additional funds will be used to engage user testers (people with disabilities) to help with product validation of start-up products and services, and for mentor facilitation and recognition.'

'The Social Innovation Award inspires the community sector to think boldly and look for new approaches to address unmet need,' said Lisa George, Global Head, Macquarie Group Foundation. 'The Cerebral Palsy Alliance is doing just that with its Remarkable Accelerator Program, harnessing technology to build social and economic inclusion. We're really excited to be able to support this work and look forward to seeing the impact it will have on the 1 in 5 people in Australia living with a disability.'

Along with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, the 2017 finalists were Giant Steps Sydney, Fighting Chance Australia, Aurora Education Foundation and Berry Street Victoria Inc.
