More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

Sibs exists to support people who grow up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. It is the only UK charity representing the needs of over half a million young siblings and over one and a half million adult siblings.

Sibs mission

Sibs aims to enhance the lives of siblings by providing them with information and support, and by influencing service provision throughout the UK.

It believes that siblings have a right:
To be valued for who they are and what they do
To be seen as individuals with specific needs
To access reliable sources of advice and information, and support services
To influence the services and policies that affect them
To reach their full potential

Sibs vision

Every sibling in the UK who is growing up with or has grown up with a disabled brother or sister will have access to information and support about sibling issues.
