Siblings Australia (SA) is an information and support service for siblings of a family member with chronic conditions including disability. It is widely recognised that for many siblings, where a family member has a chronic condition including disability, there can be both joys and challenges unique to their situation.
On the Siblings Australia website, it says –we aim to create connections between siblings, between parents and siblings, and between families and professionals. Our focus is on strengthening families. Consequently, we aim to increase the availability of information and support services for siblings of people with chronic conditions, through increasing awareness, understanding, skills and capabilities’.
The website features information about support options available for siblings who live in Queensland as well as other parts of Australia.
