Local Community Groups


The SASBAH Local Community Group Network

SASBAH’s Local Community Groups operate in four different districts across East and West Sussex. They offer the opportunity for all our service users, families and supporters to come together regularly to share experiences, to offer respite where needed, to improve understanding of the full range of support systems available, to help to increase social inclusion, and raise awareness in local communities through activities that the group decides it wishes to undertake.

Each group meets once a month (or more frequently if they wish), and it is for the group themselves to decide what they wish to do, or who they may wish to invite to help meet needs or provide information. Many of the groups also have a social agenda, which offers an important cohesive bond for support. Local promotional work and joint fundraising initiatives also feature in most of the groups.

The groups serve the following districts:

• Hastings and Rother (meet in Bexhill-on-Sea)

• Worthing and Adur (meet in Worthing)

• Mid Sussex (meet in Burgess Hill)

• Crawley and Horsham (meet in Crawley)


SASBAH staff are always on hand at each group meeting, and are able to help arrange any specific needs or activities, or invite speakers.

If you would like to join one of the groups as a volunteer or supporter; or you have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and would like to meet others; please contact Claire on 07920 576313
