About the Sibs workshops

We are pleased to be able to offer two online workshops for parents and carers which will be delivered by Sibs for UK MPS Society members.

Sibs is the only UK charity for children and adults who are growing up with or have grown up with a disabled brother or sister. You can find out more about Sibs here.

An introduction to supporting siblings of disabled children - parents workshop

This workshop is for parents and carers of someone with MPS, Fabry or a related disease who want to know more about supporting siblings. It will give parents and carers an insight into siblings’ needs and experiences and provide some ideas for giving siblings attention.

In addition to looking at how best parents can support siblings, there will be the opportunity for parents and carers to ask questions.

The workshop will be followed up with handouts and contact details for parents requiring more in-depth help.
