ASBAH (Association for Spina Bifida and
What we do
ASBAH, formed in 1966, works with people with spina bifida
and/or hydrocephalus, their families and other carers in England,
Wales and Northern Ireland. The association is a registered charity.
ASBAH employs advisers who work alongside our service users,
to help them overcome their disabilities and become less dependent
on others. We also fund medical and scientific research, campaign
on issues of importance to disabled people and publish information
sheets, books and a magazine about the disabilities.
We have area staff advisers, who provide a general service and have
their own networks of support in the local community. The area advisers
are backed up by specialist advisers, who take on the more complex
medical, educational and mobility casework, advocacy and training.
ASBAH is in the
process of completing its regionalisation programme, with fully-integrated
teams now operating on a regional basis in London and the South
East, eastern England, north England (both sides of the Pennines),
Northern Ireland and Wales.
ASBAH's Link magazine appears bi-monthly in full colour.
The cost of an annual UK subscription is £4.80 (airmail £15).
