Shine provides specialist support pre birth and throughout the life of anyone living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and related conditions, as well as to parents, families, carers and professional care staff. Shine enables people to get the best out of life.

As of the 20th October 2011, Spina bifida • Hydrocephalus • Information • Networking • Equality – Shine, became the new name for the Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (ASBAH).

Shine is a registered charity, which was formed in 1966, initially to help families and individuals affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

Today, Shine is a community of 75,000 individuals, families, friends, and professionals, sharing achievements, challenges and information on living with hydrocephalus, or spina bifida, and related issues. Working together throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we strive to overcome challenges and achieve the best for you and your family.
