SHASBAH supports everyone in the Sheffield postal district affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Spina bifida is a neural tube condition. Hydrocephalus is a neurological condition caused by the pressure of too much cerebrospinal fluid in the brain.
SHASBAH provides befriending and welfare support to everyone in the Sheffield postal district affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Our aim is to combat social isolation by arranging a wide range of group activities and events for all age groups. We regularly come together as a community for larger events such as seasonal parties, picnics, trips to local attractions and fund-raising activities.
We also provide specialist advice and guidance on benefits, education and health needs on a 1:1 basis. This is based on our personal experience and connections with other experts in the local Sheffield area. We also communicate regularly with our membership through seasonal newsletters, emails and social media.
We aim to tackle social isolation of our membership though supported get togethers, events, outing and activities. We work to create a community of friendship and support for our members and their families both online and in person.
