The Portuguese Association of Cerebral Palsy - Southern Regional Nucleus (APPC-NRS) was founded in Lisbon on July 26, 1960 by a group of parents and technicians, and was the first Association of parents and technicians for people with disabilities created in Portugal, giving rise to several nuclei that were created throughout the country.
With the restructuring of the Regional Nuclei in 2006, the Lisbon Cerebral Palsy Association - APCL, Private Social Solidarity Institution, Non-Profit Public Utility Institution, emerged.
