Service description:
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.

Sibs work with
• Adult siblings
• Young siblings
• Parents of siblings
• Service providers

Sibs support siblings of all ages who are growing up with or who have grown up with a brother or sister with any disability, long term chronic illness, or life limiting condition.

You can use their website to find support groups for adult siblings of disabled people, tips for adult siblings, resources for supporting young siblings, recommendations for schools, links to Youngsibs (an online support service for younger siblings) and more.
