An amazing opportunity for kids aged 8-18 who have a brother or sister with a disability or health impairment to have a fun and interactive day where the focus is completely on them.
Siblings are offered the chance to share stories, learn strategies and make friends with other kids who are in similar circumstances and understand the unique relationship they have with their brother or sister.
Workshops will be followed by Laser Strike at Lilliputt Fun Zone!
Please note that siblings must not have a disability or health impairment themselves.
This SibShop is made possible thanks to Care Matters.
If you have any queries please contact Helen Smith on 0508 236 236 or email email@example.com
