Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus: Stronger Links, Stronger Families

by Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) Claimed

Spina Bifida, Support Network, Health & Social Care Services

The Stronger Links, Stronger Families project provides early years services to families in the Edinburgh, Lothian, Borders, Tayside and Fife area who have a child between the ages of 0-14 with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.

The project offers a tailored support package to families that changes as your family's needs change. Support workers meet families on a one to one basis to learn more about them and how best to support the development of the child as well as the needs of the family. A support worker can also attend hospital visits, liaise with teachers at school meetings and provide advice and support at medical appointments.

There will be opportunities to attend family gatherings and events, giving parents the chance to socialise, share experiences and network while their children take part in exciting and fun activities.

Families also have access to our resources and expertise including advice on funding, respite and benefits.
