SibShop with Swimming & Hydroslides – (Christchurch)
Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Come swimming 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 swimming and enjoying the hydroslides, 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!
