We cannot thank SNAP enough for arranging SIBS4FUN which has given our daughter a fantastic opportunity to build her confidence and independence, while making new friends.

Activities for siblings

SNAP understands that having a child with special needs has a huge effect on the whole family and often it is the siblings who miss out on so much.  Not only do we see them as carers to some extent, but they cannot always have the same opportunities as other children of their age.

The expectations of the summer break need to be addressed and so to help your survival plans SNAP runs SIBS4FUN for siblings for four days in August.  The children attend all four days providing you with a wonderful opportunity to spend time with your special child knowing that your other children are having a fantastic time.

Siblings are also included in many of our children's activities including SNAP on a Monday, Therapeutic Thursdays, SNAPTASTIC and all holiday sessions.

SIBS4FUN is a summer scheme especially for children whose brothers and sisters have special needs. It is a chance for them to meet and connect with other people their own age growing up in similar situations. Not only does it provide them with a break from their role as a young carer but it also gives you an opportunity to spend individual time with your child with special needs, knowing that your other children are enjoying themselves.

SNAP would like to thank Moody Charitable Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, Rank Foundation and D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust for their support in funding this project.
