Are you an adult who has grown up with a disabled brother or sister? Would you like to meet others who just ‘get’ what life as a sibling is like? You’re not alone. Join a support group today.
An adult sibling support group has recently in the West London area on behalf of the UK charity Sibs. The group’s objective is to provide a space for siblings to meet one another in order to reduce isolation, improve wellbeing and resilience, and share knowledge.
These friendly groups, run by trained volunteers, are an opportunity for adult siblings to meet and support each other.
Being a sibling can be a complex and challenging experience. Whilst we can’t remove all of the stressors in an adult sibling’s life, we can give siblings more resources to cope.
The aims of the group are to:
Improve wellbeing and resilience
The group is for adults and not children, and for siblings of people born with disabilities. The group aims to meet every six weeks with the first session in mid-March. All sessions will be online during the Covid-19 pandemic.
