Welcome to the SBH Queensland website
SBH Queensland has been supporting children and adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus since 1970. In 2014 over 700 adults and children with spina bifida and hydrocephalus and their families will receive information, support and therapy from SBH Queensland.
Babies at Home program
Our Babies at Home Program receives no government funding but the work we do is vitally important for new babies with spina bifida and their families. For more information about our Babies at Home program download our brochure.
Family Fun days
In conjunction with Nationwide Entertainment, SBH Queensland is running family fun days to benefit children with disability throughout Queensland. Sponsorship of the Family Fun Days also helps us to run our Babies at Home program which provides therapy for children below school age and family support for their parents.
Wheel and Walk fun run
Our Wheel and Walk is on again for 2014. Please come along and support our work helping people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus on Sunday 10 August.
Southern Cross Association Poker Run
The 17th Southern Cross Association Annual Poker will be run from 1 - 6 September this year. Last year nearly 500 bikers and pillions took part and it looks like being an even bigger event this year. The run starts at the Noccundra Hotel, west of Thargomindah, and over 5 days will make its way east to finish in Tamborine.
Westfield Carindale has chosen SBH Queensland to be its charity partner for 2012/13 and 2013/14.
Thank you to Westfield Shopping Centres for also giving us a grant to run several programs and purchase equipment for young children.
Minimise the risk of your baby having spina bifida
A simple vitamin called folic acid taken daily can make a huge difference to the risks of your baby developing spina bifida.
If you are in a high risk group (have any family history of spina bifida or other neural tube defect, have type 1 diabetes or take some anti-epileptic medication) then please download and read our You and Your Pregnancy brochure.This site is maintained by Bill Shead, the Information Officer & Manager of SBH Queensland.
