Helping people living with spina bifida


SBFV members Tamlyn, Rosie, Oskar and Alex

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

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


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (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. NDIS passed
