Service summary

SIBS

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 adult 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. Sibs aims to enhance the lives of siblings by providing them with information and support, and by influencing service provision throughout the UK. YoungSibs is a website and online support service for children and young people who have a brother or sister who is disabled, has special educational needs or a serious long-term condition. It is for siblings in the UK aged 6 to 17. The YoungSibs service is run by Sibs, the UK charity for siblings of disabled children and adults. https://www.youngsibs.org.uk/
