SIBZ is a Youth group open to siblings aged 8 – 16 of children with ASC. (Autistic Spectrum Condition)
The group meet both during term time and holidays with extra effort for excursions made during the holidays. The SIBZ enjoy many outings, which include activity breaks during the summer, ten pin bowling, indoor climbing, water sports, arts and crafts, team building activities and many many more….
Children are encouraged to become involved in the running of their own club and many of the outings are their suggestions.
Siblings are also invited to talks by professional bodies to help them understand autism and related conditions. They can also share their thoughts and feelings with others who experience some of the same day-to-day challenges. Through all this they realise they are not alone.
Such a caring environment encourages a strong sense of belonging and lasting genuine friendships.
