Training session by the Charity SIBS; Support for brothers and sisters of children who have a disability
Training session by the Charity SIBS which provides support for brothers and sisters of children who have a disability.
Sibs is the only UK charity representing the needs of siblings of disabled people. There are over half a million young siblings and at least 1.7 million adults siblings in the UK, who have grown up with a disabled brother or sister.
Siblings have a lifelong need for information, they often experience social and emotional isolation, and have to cope with difficult situations. They also want to have positive relationships with their disabled brothers and sisters and to be able to choose the role they play in future care and support.
During this online session, participants will gain an insight into siblings’ needs and experiences and will also gain ideas for giving siblings attention. Time is available for parents to ask any individual questions about their own situations.
