Who we are
We are the Sheffield Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (SHASBAH). SHASBAH is a local charity, which exists to support everyone living with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in the Sheffield postal district. Our aim is to help our members to get the most out of life.
We the work by giving practical help, guidance and support to our membership. We have personal experience and good contacts in areas such as health, education, social care, benefits, implement and housing.
Sheffield Association of Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (SHASBAH) are looking to recruit new trustees to be part of our lovely community. Trustees work with staff to ensure our supporting organisation can continue and build. At SHASBAH we support people with Spina Bifida and or Hydrocephalus in all Sheffield postcodes. We help by offering small grants, advice and signposting, social gatherings and events and a range of support groups.
Trustees become part of our welcoming team that runs some exciting projects. In this role you would be contributing to supporting the welfare of our members and their families.
As a trustee we would require a couple of hours a month to join our meetings which are nearly always online (though you would always be welcome at all of our events too.) An understanding of living with disabilities and our members life experience would be great. Enthusiasm and the ability to work collaboratively are needed to expand our community. Business, legal or financial expertise are vital to grow our small charity and the support we offer.
