Sibsservice

Description

The Sibsservice is a non profit making charity that specialises in supporting the brothers and sisters of individuals with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder or Asperger's Syndrome (a diagnosis is not need).  Afterschool sessions  run each fortnight in Braunstone, Wigston, Hinckley, Coalville, Loughborough, Melton Mowbray.

If you have a child aged 7/8-14  with a brother/sister with ASD or Asperger's bring them along to our Sibs session.  We provide the siblings with a safe place where they have the freedom to be themselves and share experiences  with other children in similar situations . We deliver many different activities, art, craft, cooking, sport, games, drama,  trips out, and more.  There is a whole family summer BBQ, Christmas party and Sibs Summer camp. Whenever possible we plan activities and discussions as requested by the siblings.

The groups offer emotional and peer support through interactive, fun and relaxed group activities facilitated by qualified, friendly and enthusiastic staff.   Our aims …..
