Covid-19: What adult siblings need to know
The coronavirus outbreak is a challenging time for us all. It will be especially challenging for adult siblings who have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. There are 1.7 million adult siblings in the UK – we must remember that we are not alone.
You might be separated from your brother who has learning disabilities and can’t keep in touch with video calls; giving extra care for your sister who has physical disabilities because her care package has been reduced or living in lockdown with your autistic brother who is struggling to cope with the changes.
Siblings everywhere will be affected. Whatever your situation – come here for guidance. We are here for you and we will update this page as often as we can.
