  1. Give us a shout out on social! We are a small charity with big dreams, and we’d love to reach every single sibling in the UK. Can you share the word about Sibs on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn? The more people find us, the more we can help. Every connection makes a difference.
  2. Fundraising. Whether it’s a murder mystery night over Zoom, sponsored star jumps with the kids, or a daily 5k, we gratefully appreciate all and anything you can raise for us. You can set up a fundraising page at Virgin Money Giving. Don’t forget to let us know – we would love to thank you personally.
  3. Share your story. Sharing your sibling story on our website has two benefits. It helps other siblings like you to feel less alone in their experiences, and it helps non-siblings to understand what it’s like being a sibling and why the charity is so important. You can read other adult sibling stories here. Drop us a line to take part.
  4. Donate as you shop! Each time you shop at Amazon and they will donate to us at no cost to you (They give 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases). Click here to make Sibs your nominated charity.
  5. Join our volunteer reader panel. We’re always on the lookout for parents, professionals and adult siblings to help review our written information a few times a year. Click here to find out more and sign up.
  6. Create an online tribute. Bereaved siblings can share their treasured memories of their brother or sister, leave messages in the virtual remembrance gardens and create a fundraising page for free at www.muchloved.com
  7. Be a Friend of Sibs. Without the generosity of supporters, Sibs would not exist. Help us to continue our work and become a Friend of Sibs for £24 a year (£12 student/unemployed).
  8. Set up an adult sibling peer support group. Develop your skills and make a huge difference to other adult siblings like you by setting up and running a peer support group with SibsNetworkUK. Click here to read more about this volunteer role and express an interest.
  9. Pass on our newsletter. We send a monthly mailing with all our latest news (sign up here). Can you forward this to a friend who might know a sibling? Can you print a copy to leave at your local Carer’s Centre to help others who aren’t connected online? Your small actions will have an impact.
  10. Leave a gift to Sibs in your will. Many adult siblings tell us “I wish Sibs had existed when I was a child”. Help us change this for generations to come by leaving a legacy in your will.
  11. Ask “How are you?”. Siblings of disabled people often come second to the needs of another and can feel invisible at times. Ask a sibling how they are and tell them about our charity. This is a small and powerful way to make a sibling feel valued and noticed, and to help reduce their isolation.

Would you like to help Sibs in another way? We would love to hear from you – please tell us more.
