NHS grant for support group

By a County Press reporter

Wednesday, April 9, 2014


AN organisation that helps people with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus on the Isle of Wight has been awarded a £2,500 grant to raise awareness of the support it can offer to families.

The Isle of Wight Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (IW ASBAH) was given the grant by the NHS through the 'My Life a Full Life’ programme which aims to improve the health and well being of people on the Island in need of help and support.

Among the projects paid for by the grant will be new leaflets with information about the charity which are being delivered to all GP surgeries and the maternity department at St Mary’s Hospital, Newport.

A launch event is set to be held in June and a study day is also planned for families and professionals which will focus on Hydrocephalus.

Further information can be found on the association’s website www.iwasbah.com

A worthwhile cause, please make sure that the leaflets are only in the consulting rooms though, as a lot of people/ children with parents will just take them. So by only having them in the consulting rooms will ensure that the people who need the information will get it, good luck x
