How we work

Support Group Sessions

We offer sessions twice a week for children to come have fun and socialise with others in similar circumstances. Activities include everything from arts and crafts, messy play, cooking and baking to board games, communication and team building exercises, physical activities as well as outdoor play.

Fully qualified team

All our trustees and volunteers hold the necessary qualifications and have completed training that’s relevant in supporting these children; many also have additional knowledge from previous and present job roles. A play therapist, family portage worker, SEN teacher and more are all on hand to ensure children get the most from their time with us.

Special events

From kayaking and fundraising events, to Zoom sessions during the recent coronavirus lockdown, Super Siblings is always looking for new ways to offer support, create memories and strengthen this community of incredible children and their families.

Helping siblings of children with additional needs feel safe, have fun and simply be kids

We rely on donations; your support helps us continue doing this vital work

Help to make a real change to the lives of children and their families

Our Sessions

Sessions take place twice a week during term time. Mondays are for children aged 6-9 and Thursdays are for children aged 9-14.

Children’s wants and needs drive our sessions. We ask the children what they would like to gain from attending our sessions and what they can’t usually do or feel they miss out on due to having a disabled sibling, and then we try our best to make that happen. 

This can be as simple as playing a game, having a chat or playing loud music. Regular activities include arts and crafts, baking, cooking, teaching life skills and science experiements. We also organise trips out to the cinema, restaurants, bowling alleys and other places that siblings may not be able to cope with.

Our sessions are all about having fun and creating memorable experiences for the children.
