Sibling support

Siblings at Rainbows Hospice

Sibling support is offered to all brothers and sisters aged 5 to 18 of children/young people who use Rainbows. It is an opportunity to have fun and meet others in a similar situation. It will also allow them to obtain information and share experiences, providing opportunities to speak to others who will have an understanding of their situation and the problems they face. Our Sibling Support Worker also works individually with children often at school or their home to explore their thoughts and feelings on the impact of living with a sibling with a life limiting condition. They also offers bereavement support.
