Sibs are the only UK charity representing the needs of siblings of disabled people. We support siblings 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.
There are over half a million young siblings and over a million adult siblings in the UK. Siblings have specific needs that require attention at different stages of their lives, including relief of isolation, information, and strategies for coping with the situations they find themselves in. Our aim is to enhance the lives of siblings by providing them with information and support, and by influencing service provision for siblings throughout the UK.
Our long term vision is that each local authority in the UK will have a dedicated sibling service, providing sibling groups and one to one support for children who are siblings.
There are hundreds of pages of valuable advice and information in our guides for adult siblings.
