This Is Me 

This is Me is the Shine group linking members who are 11 - 17 year old and have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.

TIM members receive a free quarterly newsletter packed with member's stories, puzzles, news, events, and often a competition or two!

We also run social events and opportunities for TIM members to meet, and have a Keep in Touch scheme where we will try to put you in e-mail/letter contact with another like-minded member.

All Shine members aged 11 to 17 will automatically be part of the This is Me group.


If you are not yet a member of Shine, don’t miss out - it’s easy and free to join!

Join online here or contact Shine on 01733 555988 or email

If you are under 16 a parent or guardian will need to do this.


You can also join our closed Facebook group if you are 13+
(that’s Facebook rules...)

Just click on this link and request to join.

We will need to check that you are a Shine member before you are added to the group.

Need more help?

If you need to speak with one of Shine’s specialist advisers about spina bifida or hydrocephalus, call us on 01733 555988 or click here to email us.

Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. We aim to respond to all enquiries as quickly as possible!
