Challenge

When a child is affected by a life threatening or serious illness siblings often believe they have done something bad to cause this imbalance. Brothers and sisters feel frightened about what is happening around them and what the future holds. Rainbow Trust Family Support Workers offer a sense of normality, the opportunity for healthy siblings to have one-to-one support sessions making them feel valued and helping with their self-esteem.

Solution

Sibling support is a crucial part of our services to help brothers and sisters of a seriously ill child understand what is happening in their family, enable continuity of daily life and be supported to develop and grow into healthy young people and adults.

Long-Term Impact

* Siblings emotional and mental health is protected. * Siblings attendance at school maintained. * Siblings social opportunities are sustained avoiding isolation. As an organisation we support over 2,000 siblings annually.
