Welcome to the SBH Queensland website
SBH Queensland has been supporting children and adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus since 1970. In 2013 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 has received funding from Westfield and others to undertake this vitally important therapy for new babies with spina bifida and support for their families. For more information about our Babies at Home program download our brochure.
SBH Queensland in conjunction with Nationwide Entertainment Pty are proud to bring communities throughout Queensland the Annual Family Fun Day.
Your support will enable local special needs families in your community to attend the local Annual Family Fun Day. These events are put on completely free including tickets, drinks and food. The events create something special for families that may not be able to attend otherwise. In addition your support for the Family Fun Day will be used by SBH Queensland to provide therapy for children with spina bifida.
If you are contacted by one of our callers, please help us to provide these greatly needed services for children and a wonderful event in your community.

Southern Cross Association Poker Run
Last year as part of Spina Bifida Awareness Week almost 500 bikers and pillions took to the roads riding 3,000 klms around central and Western Queensland to raise funds for our Children’s Programs. It was the 16th Annual Southern Cross Association Poker Run and it ran from 1 - 6 September. More information about the annual run is available here.
Westfield Carindale has chosen SBH Queensland to be its charity partner for 2012/13.
Thank you to Westfield Shopping Centres for a grant to run several of our programs including Babies at Home Program and Toileting Program in 2013 and 2014.
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. Download a copy of the Food Standards ANZ brochure here.
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.
