Shine are launching Hydrocephalus Awareness Week on Friday 7th February 2020. 

Awareness Week is a great opportunity to help raise awareness of hydrocephalus and give people a 'Heads Up' on the condition.
We want to engage, empower and enable all of our members with hydrocephalus to have better lives.

We asked members what would help with this and have created a members pack full of useful resources following your feedback. We hope this helps you have those conversations which can sometimes be difficult to let others know about the condition, how it affects you and how they can help.

Everyone can get involved!
