What’s happening?

“Thrive in your career, whilst being a sibling too”: an online workshop for adult siblings in celebration of National Siblings Day.

To thrive is to feel that you are doing more than just surviving, to feel that you are growing. Thriving means different things to different people and this workshop will, but by attending this workshop you can expect to gain:

  • Time for reflection on you and your career
  • Clarity on how to juggle work and being a sibling in a way that feels good for you
  • Clarity about your unique strengths
  • Ideas for tweaks you can make, to help you to thrive.

Lead by sibling and life coach, Charlotte Flynn.

“I found the session with Charlotte Flynn on careers and being a sibling very beneficial and it helped me to identify my strengths from how I care for my sibling. It helped me to see my abilities from a different perspective. It also gave me the opportunity to share experiences and ideas with other siblings.” – Previous attendee

When and where?

Wednesday 10th April, 7pm – 8.30pm

Online via Zoom

How much does it cost?

The thrive workshop costs £5 per person.

This is a fraction of the actual cost of your place. The event is subsidised by Sibs so that we can offer a low ticket cost to siblings.

We can offer funded places costs for anyone in financial difficulty – just let us know by emailing info@sibs.org.uk

The fee is non-refundable under any circumstances, because of the cost to the charity of processing this, unless the event has to be cancelled by us due to reasons beyond our control.

Who can sign up?

To join this event you must:

  • Be aged 18 or over
  • Currently live in the UK
  • Have (or had) a brother or sister who has a lifelong disability from birth

A sibling-only environment helps siblings to feel comfortable sharing their experiences with others who truly understand. No parents, partners, brothers/sisters, researchers or professionals will be admitted.

What can I expect?

  • A friendly hello from us at Sibs!
  • The chance to meet and say hello to other siblings like you – everyone will have their video on and there will be the opportunity for discussion in breakout rooms
  • To take part in the workshop activities, expertly led by Charlotte Flynn
  • A confidential, sibling-only environment ­– no recording or screenshots, no parents or professionals

“I really found Charlotte Flynn’s life coach session extremely helpful” – Previous attendee

What isn’t included?

  • Please note that this is a large group session and that one-to-one support cannot be provided for individual personal issues
  • The session will not be recorded. This is so that siblings can feel comfortable sharing their experiences in a confidential environment

I’m not in work/I’m a full-time carer/I’m a student/I’m retired…is this workshop still for me?

Yes! Whilst the primary focus of the workshop is on careers, this isn’t restricted to the traditional sense of being in full-time, paid employment.

Charlotte’s teachings can be applied broadly. You might have a creative project at home that you’re working on, do volunteer work, or be studying, and it’s likely that you’ll still be able to apply the contents of the workshop to these areas of your life.

“The model Charlotte used with the core and stretch zone visually enables us to see the impact of too much and what really matters. When there is more space and time for us we can grow as humans. It was easy to comprehend and later bring to recall when life does need an overview and we can be overwhelmed by outside pressure.” – Previous attendee

I can’t make it, but I’d like to hear about future workshops
