Monthly Activity Days

'Your support has helped our small charity make big differences.'
Delma Hughes - Founder, Siblings Together
Siblings Together champion, build and strengthen relationships between brothers and sisters aged 7 -18 years, separated by the care system. They use creative activities and skilled adult support to help the young people they work with in rebuilding their sibling relationships.

Years: 2012, 2013, 2014

Having worked with Siblings Together in 2011, the ALMT felt every confidence in funding a new initiative, Monthly Activity Days. The programme is a three year pilot based in London. When founder Delma Hughes came to the ALMT, the project had already proved to be highly successful in offering the continued positive contact that brothers and sisters in care need. Following the pilot, Siblings Together hope to share their learning and expand the model to other regions of the UK.

 

Siblings Together Monthly Activity Days provide a monthly opportunity for regular fun, creative and educational sibling contact. Held at their activity centre in Camden Town, the days include outdoor and indoor activities such as art workshops, photography, music, games, drama, sport, film, music, ice-skating, cinema, canal boat trips, kayaking and climbing.

 

The monthly activity days offer challenges and exciting adventures for looked after siblings within a safe and accepting environment. The young people create their own photo albums and scrapbooks which provide lasting memories of their experiences with their siblings. All activities and workshops are led by skilled staff, art therapists and experienced volunteers. 

 

In 2013 and 2014, the ALMT fundaised at the annual Burns Night dinner for Siblings Together and have continued to support the MAD's programme.
