The purpose of this paper is to provide a commentary on the article by Chase and McGill from the perspective of Sibs, the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting siblings of disabled children and adults.
This commentary explores the implication of Chase and McGill’s findings for sibling support.
The article highlights how siblings need greater support throughout their life and argues that their views must influence the provision and development of that support.
This viewpoint focuses on the needs of adult siblings, often a forgotten group facing unique challenges and shared experiences.
