KASBAH was founded by a group of parents of children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in 1966 with a desire to help other families in circumstances similar to their own. All of the support services are now open to any person with a physical and/or learning disabilities, including support for the parents, carers and families.


Latest from KASBAH...


A message from Emma...

Hi from me,

Happy New Year! We are starting 2017 with enthusiasm and drive and are already preparing for our new financial year targets and focusses, if you feel we need to focus more time and resources in a particular area then please do contact me or the office staff and share your views. We are fortunate to have two new social work students and as an established social work placement seven months of the year, we do have the opportunity to offer additionality such as home visits and routine contact we struggle to offer outside of specific case work so if you do have a need please contact me or drop me an e-mail:

We are close to finishing our first housing build, we have built a self contained flat at our site in Rochester Road, Gravesend. This will enable a KASBAH member to live independently but with support just a call away when help and guidance is needed.

More exciting plans to follow in our next edition.

Best Wishes

Emma - KASBAH Chief Officer


Gift Aid

Gift Aid provides a great opportunity for you to increase the value of the donations you make to KASBAH. Provided you are a UK taxpayer, however you make your donations, KASBAH can reclaim the basic rate tax from the Inland Revenue, boosting the donation of every £1 to £1.25.

There are several different ways you can make a donation:

By Post

Donations can be made by cheque, postal order or cash and should be posted to:
KASBAH, 7 The Hive, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9DE.
Please make cheques and postal orders payable to KASBAH. We recommend that cash payments should only be sent using a secure mailing system (i.e. registered mail).

By Standing Order

If you want to make regular donations, payments by standing order are an effective way of doing this. You can make payments weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly to suit. Once the initial forms are completed, please return them to the KASBAH office for documenting, we will then forward them to your bank who will do the rest.

Payroll Giving

Many employers now operate Payroll Giving schemes. These schemes are tax efficient as they enable you to make a donation directly from your salary before tax has been deducted. This means that if you pay the basic rate of tax, for every £1.00 you give to KASBAH, it only costs you 78 pence. (For higher rate taxpayers the scheme has even greater advantages.)

Legacies are an effective way of making sure that your good intentions and our vital work continues into the future. Naturally, your first concern will be for your family and loved ones, but please consider helping us by including KASBAH with your will. Legacies are tax-free and simple to set up even if you do not currently have a will.
