YoungSibsCare and support, Information, advice and guidance, Support group
Online information service for children and young people aged 7-17, who have a brother or sister who is disabled, has special educational needs, or a serious long-term condition.
Children and young people growing up with a disabled brother or sister often get less attention from parents, and have more worries and responsibilities than their peers. Many young siblings experience daily challenges in their lives such as public prejudice and finding it hard to get schoolwork done. They also need recognition for the positive aspects of their family lives, such as learning new skills and being supportive of their brothers’ and sisters’ needs.
Young siblings can:
- Get information about disability and conditions, and tips for enjoying life, and dealing with feelings.
- Get help from our team with sibling issues at home and at school.
- We provide information for parents and professionals on supporting siblings.
