‘A Partnership with Volunteers in our Work’

MID-WEST SPINA BIFIDA AND HYDROCEPHALUS ASSOCIATION

MISSION STATMENT

“IS TO ENCOURAGE AND SUPPORT AN ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MEMBERS, PARENTS, FAMILIES AND CARERS STRIVING FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE”.

Why MID-WEST SPINA BIFIDA AND HYDROCEPHALUS ASSOCIATION INVOLVES VOLUNTEERS IN ITS WORK

Mid-West Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association is an organisation steeped in the tradition of volunteering. Our prominence today as a major provider of support services to people diagnosed with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus would not have been achieved was it not for the commitment given by local volunteers.

In recent years Mid-West Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association has become increasingly professionalised, employing a wide range of paid staff who bring a vast array of experience and knowledge to their work. The work has become more focused and specialised in response to needs identified by our members. Mid-West Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association continues to encourage the involvement of volunteers at all levels and within all appropriate activities. Volunteers serve the needs of our members in a way that enhances and extends existing services.
