Siblings Together - UK - 2015

Working with Corney and Barrow Bars to nuture sibling relationships

Siblings Together aim to help young people in care initiate and continue to have contact with their siblings, helping them to develop strong family bonds and above all achieve an independent and positive place in society supported by their sibling relationships.

Years: 2015

ALMT have been proud partners of Siblings Together since their inception in 2010. One of the key strands of their work are Monthly Activity Days (MADS). After piloting successful residential camps, Siblings Together found that there was unmet need to provide separated siblings regular contact throughout the year at a stable location. Whilst the camps provide quality time for those able to attend the, it was evident that camps are not accessible to all sibling groups, and that support for on-going contact is also required

 

Many of the children would only meet with their siblings and possibly parents in social services contact rooms where they would compete for attention, were monitored, and could only spend an hour or so together every few months. Siblings Together therefore designed the MADs to facilitate regular, consistent and fun contact between siblings, in turn enabling them to re-frame and develop their sibling relationships. Their approach is to be ‘actively therapeutic’, offering enjoyable and meaningful experiences and building positive, lifelong family bonds.

 

Continuing the ALMT's relationship with Corney and Barrow Bars, in 2015, the team have selected Siblings Together as their charity beneficiary of the year and their fundraising will be directed to fund the MADs in 2016.
