Welcome to the SBH Queensland website

The SBH Queensland lift campaign
SBH Queensland is raising funds to purchase and install a lift at the organisation’s premises at Dutton Park.
Currently, members with wheelchairs or mobility aides can only access the main floor of SBH via the ramp at the front entry. Entry via this ramp is problematic as the car park is at the rear of the building and is 1.5 storey lower than the front entry.
Our members must navigate a steep driveway just to enter our building or park on the street and transfer from their car to their chair in neighbourhood street parking.
A lift at the rear of the SBH building will allow our members to continue to park safely in the SBH car park and have user friendly access to the expert services provided by SBH Qld.
SBH Queensland is seeking funding from government grants to subsidise our fundraising efforts, however grants will only meet 50% of the costs.
Your donation, large or small, will greatly assist SBH Queensland continue to provide our high quality service. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

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.
Westfield Carindale has chosen SBH Queensland to be its charity partner for 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16. Westfield has provided grants to SBH Queensland to help run programs for young children.
Thank you to Westfield Shopping Centres National for supporting us with grants to run several programs 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.
