Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy seeks to bring about positive changes in the lives of all people with cerebral palsy through a range of policies and service provisions designed to enhance their individual skills and knowledge and give them opportunities to exercise their constitutional rights and fully participate and contribute to the community and country.

In 1974, the parents of a young boy with cerebral palsy set up the first NGO for cerebral palsy in Eastern India. The Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy (formerly Spastics Society of Eastern India) started with two children and today supports over 3,000 families. Children and young adults with cerebral palsy can avail of the IICP's services - irrespective of their socio-economic background - in order to enhance their skills, exercise their rights and contribute to their country and community.

IICP is a nationally recognized training institute and both urban and rural families benefit from IICP's educational therapy, rehabilitation, residential, vocational, community, diagnostic and counseling services. Needy children are given free medicines and supplementary nutritional meals and there is a constant effort to create awareness about cerebral palsy.

IICP is a non-government organization aided by Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment. It is a national resource centre for cerebral palsy and through its training has been a catalyst for the development of affiliated services in other states of India and partner organizations in the districts of West Bengal. IICP was started by parents and a group of concerned friends and has continued to center its vision and priorities on families and their needs. It endeavors to work for inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of life. Human rights and the involvement parents and persons with disabilities in decision-making are foremost priorities in the organization's philosophy, policies and practice.
