Parent to Parent NZ presents: SibSupport NZ SibShop with Laser Tag

Parent to Parent NZ presents: SibSupport NZ SibShop with Laser Tag

Come to Laserforce with us! A fun-filled day for Kiwi kids and teens who have a disabled brother or sister, and a chance to connect with other kids who just ‘get it’.

Our popular SibShops offer the opportunity for children and youth with a disabled brother or sister to have a day where the focus and attention is just on them.

As well as having a blast at Laserforce, these siblings will get the chance to sit down together and talk about what it’s like having a disabled sibling, in a safe environment with others who know just where they are coming from. They will also get the chance to discuss practical tips and strategies to help them thrive in their own unique family and whānau environment. Our SibShops are incredibly popular so get in quick!

Saturday 19 June, 2021

Who: Children aged 8-18 who have a disabled sibling or a sibling with a health impairment.
When: 10am—4:30pm
Where: Aristotles North Shore, Cnr Link Dr & Sunnynook Rd, Wairau Park, Auckland
Cost: This event is free thanks to funding from Care Matters. Lunch will be provided.
