Siblings from around the world talk about how important it is to connect with other siblings who understand the experience better than anyone. A common expression is ‘no-one understands a sib like another sib’. Siblings Australia has set up several ways you can connect with other siblings, both online and face to face:
- SibChat on Facebook – a closed group for adult siblings, which provides general support from other siblings.
- SibChat discussion forum – an online discussion board where sibs can ask questions or respond to specific topics.
- Face to face peer support groups – at this stage there are groups running in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
