The trauma of separation from siblings and its lifelong effects are often overlooked. We aim to help young people in care initiate and continue to have contact with their siblings, helping them to develop strong family bonds and above all achieve an independent and positive place in society supported by their sibling relationships.
Siblings Together provides opportunities for planned, enjoyable, creative and high quality sibling contact, for children living in different care arrangements.
Our residential holiday camps and monthly activity days MAD’s are most suitable for children & young people aged 7-18 years, although occasionally older siblings are welcomed along to join in some activities, or to assist.
Our Creative Connections programmes are developed for a variety of age groups creating positive experiences for all children in care, siblings too!. Such as our Annual Young Writers week held at the Arvon Foundation, Film Making at The Roundhouse, Drama Weeks at The Young Vic Theater some are specifically for the 16-25 yrs Careleaver’s age group.
Through our work we also influence policy and practice on the issue of sibling family contact.
