Support for young carers


Siblings of disabled children

The Sibling Service (Sibs) supports children aged 6 to 17 who have a brother or sister with a disability.

Sibs arrange activity days and social events and help to build local support groups.

There may be a charge for some activities.

The service is for brothers and sisters of disabled children who do not:

  • have their own moderate to severe Special Educational Needs (SEN), or
  • attend Social, Emotional and Mental Health school or unit (SEMH).

If you have other questions, contact SIBs team.
