Sibling group leader training

Do you want to run group support for young siblings of children/young people with disabilities? The people who run sibling sessions come from a range of backgrounds. You need to be interested in siblings of disabled children and feel confident in facilitating discussion groups for children and young people. Your main tasks as a sibling group leader are: plan and facilitate group sessions; ensure that within the sessions, siblings have the opportunity to talk openly about their lives; lead the other workers during the sessions; and facilitate planning meetings. 

This online session via Zoom will give you all the information you need to plan, run and evaluate your own local siblings group.
