Funding from Carer Support Services has given us the opportunity to coordinate a Sibling Program for 12 months for the siblings of participants that we support.
Often, siblings without disabilities miss out on social opportunities due to the care needs of their brothers and sisters living with a disability.
So, once a month, Interchange will run a social group with community-based activities for up to 12 teenage siblings. The activities will be structured to allow the siblings meaningful interactions with their peers and support staff.
We will utilise the community-based activities that are on offer here in Bendigo such as:
Ten pin bowling, Jumpz, the Zone, the movies, heated pool, and more.
We plan to begin running this program soon, so if this Sibling Program interests you, please contact Eli Geary at Interchange on:
