All Children, All Abilities, All Possibilities

Who is it for?

SIBs Club is for children aged 7 – 12 whose brother or sister has a disability or developmental delay, or presents with difficult behaviour.

What happens at SIBs club?

The program is fun and relaxed, and gives your child the opportunity to play and spend time with other children in similar circumstances.

SIBs Club is run by experienced and qualified group leaders who encourage fun in a safe and therapeutic environment.

Group leaders assist your child to develop important life skills through activities that sensitively support their individual needs.

Staff support your child to understand and manage feelings associated with having a brother or sister with additional needs, and help your child to develop coping strategies and increased resilience.

How long does it go for?

SIBs Club happens one afternoon a week during school terms. There’s also an excursion during school holiday periods.

What does it cost?

SIBs Club is free, and afternoon tea is provided. Disability-specific government funding covers the weekly costs, however excursions usually have a fee dependent upon the activity and transport requirements.
