Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland

The Scottish Spina Bifida Association was founded in 1965 by a small group of enthusiastic parents who each had a child with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.

50 years on, we are a registered Scottish charity, now known as Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland). We employ specialist support and nursing staff who work right across Scotland. Our staff offer a life-time commitment of information and support to all those affected by the lifelong, complex disabilities of spina bifida, hydrocephalus and their allied conditions.

Since 1965, we have been almost entirely self-funded but thanks to donations from supporters our services have been able to flourish. We are now in a position where we successfully provide more support than ever before to over 3500 children, young people, adults, their carer’s and families across Scotland.

Our achievements are a direct result of the generous support from friends past and present. Friends who share our vision of enabling all those with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus to live the best life possible.

Thank you to all those who have helped us this far and with a little help from our friends we’ll be with our members for another 50 years.

SBH Scotland. There for the journey. Please help us make a difference.
