SPACE Peterborough Siblings

Peterborough’s Siblings project, known as SPACE project stands for Siblings Playing And Caring Everyday.

The project is open to anyone aged 5 to 17, who has a brother or sister with a physical or learning disability or long-term illness.

The SPACE project:

  • is for children and young people who have a brother or sister that has a physical or learning disability or a serious long-term condition
  • is for access to group activities and sessional 1:1 engagement (if appropriate)
  • is to reduce their possible social and emotional isolation felt by having a brother or sister with a disability or illness
  • will allow them to meet other children and young people who also have a brother or sister with a disability or illness
  • gives them their own SPACE
