Koorana’s SIBs Club is a recreational program for children aged 7-12 years who have a sibling with a disability and/or developmental delay. It provides children with a variety of experiences and gives them the opportunity to meet other children who share a similar lived experience.
We organise activities though the year, giving kids a chance to have fun with games and activities.
Attending SIBs activities, your children will:
- Gain a better understanding of the unique challenges of having a sibling with a disability;
- Engage in fun activities in a safe space;
- Make new friends; and
- Develop confidence in their unique contribution to family life.
Please join our free program that supports children who, aged 7-12 years, have a sibling with a disability.
