Sibling Support

derian house staff

Derian House has a dedicated Sibling Support Service as part of the Family Support team offering both pre and post bereavement support to siblings of our children and young people referred using Derian House.

Support for siblings can be tailored to individual needs, likes, circumstances and experiences.

Sibling Support operates an open referral system which can come from children, young people, families, schools or any professional involved with the family. Requests for support will be assessed on an individual basis by the Sibling Support Worker 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 needed and an assessment may be completed to capture the sibling’s needs.

We have a range of services to meet the needs of siblings in a way which is age appropriate and relevant to individual circumstances.
