At Derian House we have a dedicated Sibling Support Service based within the Family Support team that offers both pre and post bereavement support to siblings of our children referred and accepted to Derian House. Support for siblings can be individually tailored to individual needs, circumstances and experiences.
Sibling Support operates an open referral system and can come directly from children, young people, families, schools or any other professional involved with the family. Requests for support will be assessed on an individual basis by the Sibling Coordinator and initial contact will be made by phone or in person to the family or young person. A visit will be arranged to meet the family to discuss what support is required and an assessment may be completed to capture the sibling’s needs.
We have a range of services to meet the needs of siblings and support will be offered in a way which is both age appropriate and relevant to individual circumstances.
- One to One Sessions
- Danni’s Club (a group for children ages 8 -13 to meet up and have fun)
- Chill Out and Chat (a group for young people age 13-17)
- Sibling Outings
- Treasure Days – making cherished keepsakes to remember our siblings
- Pebbles Group – to help bereaved siblings through their grief
