Siblings Australia: Adult Sibling Survey

Please help to spread the word about this survey from Siblings Australia:

Are you a sibling of someone with disability? *

Siblings Australia would love to hear from you!

Or do you have an interest in people with disability? We hope you will spread this information amongst your networks so we can reach as many adult siblings as possible.

This survey is part of Siblings Australia’s new project - Creating Capacity: Support for Adult Siblings. The survey will help us make decisions about the project and let us know what you want.

It also gives you an opportunity to get involved in the project.

The project is about adult siblings of people with disability. Adult siblings are brothers or sisters of people with disability who are 18 years of age or older.

The project will develop online resources for adult siblings about the NDIS and the different roles that siblings might play in supporting their brother or sister with disability. It will also develop opportunities for peer support and mentoring between adult siblings.

Siblings Australia is a national organisation that is committed to improving the support available for siblings of children and adults with disability, chronic illness and mental health issues.

We hope to have all responses by early December 2016, and we would appreciate you completing the survey as soon as possible. Please pass on the survey to any sibling of a person with disability who you think will be interested in taking part

We will shortly be sending out information about volunteering to be a Peer Support Group leader. If you are interested in this, please click the link in the comments below to join the Siblings Australia email alert and we will keep you informed.

If you would like more information, please contact Kate Strohm, Director Siblings Australia on kate@siblingsaustralia.org.au

*In this context, the word disability includes people with disability, chronic illness and mental health issues.
