​North & West Yorkshire Association for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus (North & West Yorkshire ASBAH) is a registered charity supporting children, adults and families with hydrocephalus and/or spina bifida in North & West Yorkshire

By supporting, informing, and campaigning, North & West Yorkshire ASBAH is continuing to help promote individual choice, control, and quality of life for all the people who use our services.

We work in partnership with Shine which is the national organisation for people with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus but we are a charity in our own right with our own charity number and we have to raise our own funds for our work. We are committed to helping and supporting all our service users, whether this is through planning social and recreational events, or providing up to date information and education to our members. We originally started out as the Leeds Association in 1966 primarily as a parent organisation and we became a registered charity in 1967. 

Our registered charity number is 252129.





The next Stay and Play session will be at the Donkey Sanctuary at Eccup! Come along from 10am on Saturday August 17th for a chance to meet up with other families, have a free drink on us, use the indoor and outdoor play facilities and - of course - see some donkeys! There is no charge -  just let us know you're coming by contacting Katy ( e-mail below) 


We have a whole series of exciting events for adults, families and young people happening in the next few months. If you would like to join us on a trip to RHS Harlow Carr, a visit to Herd Farm, or an outing to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, please contact Katy Raven, our Activities Coordinator, on katyravenasbah@gmail.com to get all the details.
