Lockdown and the Covid-19 pandemic has created further isolation and challenges for children and young people growing up with siblings with disabilities.

Sibs is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting siblings who have grown up with or are growing up with a disabled brother or sister.  Sibs provides direct support for young siblings through YoungSibs an online support and information service for children and young people aged 7-17 who have a sibling who is disabled, has special educational needs or a serious long-term condition.  Sibs also offer information and tips for parents in supporting siblings with feelings, attention, and understanding disability or additional needs.
