Sibling Support

MOIRA’s Sibling Support provides a fun and supportive space where children who have a brother or sister with disability or a chronic condition can get together and have fun outside of the challenges of having a sibling living with disability.

There is no set structure – we listen to what children in this program want to do and we develop activities to suit. While sibling support activities are based around fun and recreation, valuable informal supports often develop as a result of interacting with other children who have siblings with disabilities.

Once every year MOIRA runs a two-day camp for siblings of children living with disability. Past camps have been held in popular recreational places such as Portsea and Mt Eliza, where there are a wide variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities.

Who can take part in Sibling Support?

The program offers a social support group for ages eight to 14 years, an annual camp for ages eight to 17 years, and recreation activities for ages seven to 17 years throughout the year. 

The program welcomes children who have a brother or sister with a disability or chronic condition residing in the south of Melbourne.
