How we support siblings through YoungSibs
Information – The YoungSibs website has information about disability, dealing with feelings and family life, and tips for coping with difficult situations.
Get help – Siblings can write letters to YoungSibs with problems they want help with. They will receive a personalised response from an experienced member of the Sibs’ team. They can choose to have the responses to their letters published on the YoungSibs letters page.
YoungSibs chat – This forum is for siblings to talk to other young siblings in the UK. It is moderated by Sibs’ staff to ensure that the forum is used safely and appropriately.
Sibling group chat – This is for local sibling groups to keep in touch. If you are a sibling group leader and want to register your own sibling group contact YoungSibs
