Our Team

The Spina Bifida Adult Resource Team (SBART) provides clinical consultation, education, support and preventative health strategies to adults with spina bifida. The SBART consists of a Clinical Nurse Consultant and a Senior Occupational Therapist, providing a range of free services to adults who have spina bifida and are living in NSW.

These services include:

  • Assisting young people to make the move from paediatric to adult services
  • Orientating young people to their new adult health service
  • Assisting with medical concerns as well as providing education and support to adults with spina bifida
  • Linking adults to appropriate health services as required
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles for adults with spina bifida
  • Attending adult spina bifida clinics across NSW
  • Providing spina bifida education to community services

SBART is funded by the Department of Health and hosted by Northcott, meaning that it is not NDIS funded and open to anyone with spina bifida. 


Referrals are taken directly by the Spina Bifida Adult Resource Team. Adults with spina bifida can refer themselves, or any health or community service they are working with can make the referral with their permission. The Spina Bifida Adult Resource Team is funded by NSW Health and supported by Northcott.
