Membership - Our community
We are a highly active community of members, families, friends and professionals working together to;
Meet the needs, value the contribution and celebrate the lives of people living with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
As an organisation we listen intently to our membership and the Shine Adult Member’s Council (SAMC) feeds directly into the process and policy of the charity.
In October 2011 we welcomed our new Membership Development Officer, Gobi Ranganathan. The purpose of Gobi’s role, which is backed by a £250,000 Big Lottery Grant, is to engage the Shine membership and empower everyone involved to reach their full potential.
Our quarterly magazine, Together, keeps everyone informed about all the latest news and offers the opportunity for people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus to share their experiences.
We are highly active on our social networks and believe that this form of communication is crucial to reach more people who live with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Darren Fower, our Media Development Officer, ensures that all the latest news is shared via Facebook, Twitter and other relevant media.
