Let's celebrate Sibling's Day!
Why we need your help
What is Sibling's Day?
Siblings Day is a holiday recognized annually in some parts of the United States on April 10, honouring the relationships of siblings. Siblings United has decided to celebrate it on the same date.
Siblings Day is also celebrated in India, Australia, Guyana and South America.
Why celebrating Siblings' Day?
It is estimated that 49.5% of siblings that enter the care system are separated in England.
Siblings United (SU) programme reunites brothers and sisters who are separated by care. The programme advocates and facilitates ongoing contact while they are living apart. The project activities involve reuniting siblings through residential camps and one day events that provide a mixture of adventure activities and aspects of mindfulness.
During Sibling's Day we aim to raise awareness of siblings who are separated in care and adoption and to highlight the bond that exists between siblings.
How can I take part?
