Siblings Support Group

children_in_woodsFun activities for brothers and sisters (age 8+) of a child with a disability or special needs.

A chance to take time out, on a monthly basis, and have space outside the home environment, to enjoy their childhood, have fun, make new friends, value and share own skills, learn from others and develop new skills to enhance ‘social learning and life skills.’

“I think it is really great because there are loads of people, who are there to talk to. They understand your brother or sister’s disability”

“Somewhere to have fun, where you can chill out and visit new places”

“Fun exciting, fantastic and wonderful”

“It is a really good idea because it is hard to take a disabled child out. Kidzspace (the name for sibling group) gives us a chance to be ourselves, be understood and accepted”
