Helping people living with spina bifida


Spina Bifida Foundation Victoria (SBFV) provides members and the community with a wide range of resources for living with, managing, and reducing the risk of spina bifida. We were founded in the mid-1990s by a group of parents, physiotherapists and doctors to improve services and life chances for Victorians with spina bifida.  In 2002, SBFV joined forces with the Spina Bifida Association of Victoria

Pictured above are some of our members, read their stories here.

SBFV does not receive any government funding and relies solely on the generosity of community members.


SBFV congratulates all campaigners and Members of Parliament for working collaboratively to deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for people with disability, their families and carers.
NDIS is a new way of providing community linking and individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers. Visit the NDIS website or call 1800 800 110 for more info.
