Welcome to SBHI

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. 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. Parents and individuals with the condition(s) 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.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission or purpose of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland is to provide information, support and advice to people with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus, their parents and carers, as well as to promote social inclusion and equality for people with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in Irish society.
