Sibling support

Senses Australia understands that brothers or sisters may have some concerns or questions which relate to being the sibling of a person with disability. It is why we run our Sibling Support group throughout the year.

The group provides a safe and supportive environment for siblings to share their feelings, concerns, questions and problems.  It also helps to reduce a sibling’s sense of isolation and provides opportunities for new friendships.

What’s more the group encourages the growth of positive attitudes, understanding and increased sensitivity towards siblings who have a disability.  We highly recommend it!

Supersibs Sibling Workshop – July 2017

Senses Australia would like to invite our special brothers and sisters to a Supersibs Sibling Workshop. The workshop will be facilitated by Senses Australia social workers and a Senses Australia Clinical Psychologist.

This workshop is for siblings of children who already access our services.

Time: 9:30am to 12:45pm
RSVP: Monday, 10 July 2017 to Gessica Monni via email gessica.monni@senses.org.au

Parents are encouraged to join us for a light lunch at 12:45pm.

Play games, have fun, share stories and strategies, feel supported by other kids who share similar life experiences!

The session will be set in a fun and informal environment to create an atmosphere for positive change and adaptation whilst reducing sibling’s sense of isolation and creating opportunities for new friendships.
