Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland
An organisation created by parents; for parents and their children. Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland was founded in 1965 (then known as Scottish Spina Bifida Association) by a small group of enthusiastic parents who each had a child with spina bifida.

After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that.
