National Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Ireland Ltd trading as Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI)
SBHI, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland was established in 1968 by a small group of parents whose children had Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus. These parents continue to dedicate their time to the association and are now elected volunteers on our Board of Directors as well as being elected to Branch Committees nationally. Today, SBHI has over 3 000 members and has branches in all four provinces, as well as a professionally run National Resource Centre based in Clondalkin, Dublin 22
We depend significantly on fundraising to help with the delivery of all of our services. All funds received from fundraising goes directly to service provision for members of SBHI. Fundraising income is solely used for service delivery and not for any form of wage or salary payments. Our organisation is appropriately governed and our accounts are transparent at all times.
