Sibs - Family support services

What we do

Sibs is the only UK charity representing the needs of siblings of disabled people. 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. There are over half a million young siblings and 1.7 million adult siblings in the UK.

Sibs provides email information and support to young siblings (children and young people) on any sibling issue. Sibs also has a parenting siblings phone service for parents to help them support siblings with sibling issues such as giving attention, explaining disability, and dealing with siblings' feelings.
