Sibshops provide young brothers and sisters with peer support and information in a lively, recreational setting. For the adults who run them and for the agencies that sponsor them, Sibshops are evidence of their loving concern for the family member who will have the longest-lasting relationship with a person who has a disability. However, for the kids who attend them, Sibshops are pedal-to-the-metal events where they will meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs, play some great games, learn something about the services their brothers and sister receive, and have some more fun.


SibNet is the Internet’s first and largest online community for adult brothers and sisters of people with disabilities. SibNet has connected tens of thousands of sisters and brothers from around the globe with their peers, providing members with validation, information, and advice.
