Sibling Group Sessions


Meet at Museum Car Park, Lerwick

We run a monthly group on a Saturday morning from 10.45 - 12.45 for young people who have a sibling with Additional Support Needs or possibly carrying out a small caring role for a parent.

This group is to specifically designed so that children can have time out from their sibling. It is timed so that it fits with the drop off and pick ups for the Ability Shetland Saturday Club, so that once a month parents can also have some respite time!

We always have lots of ideas for activities, from arts and crafts, to board games, to cooking, to going for a walk, plus lots more! Usually these will be decided on the day, but if you have a great idea that you would like to do, let Laura know beforehand on [email protected] or 01595 743946.

Please see Family Days events tab for more information about activities you can bring the whole family to.

  • Saturday 28th May 2022, 10.45am-12.45pm - May Day Mile walk for RNLI -

    We will meet in the museum car park at 10.45am. We will then take part in our own ‘May Day Mile’ walk which is to raise awareness and funds for the RNLI. We will walk the mile (or slightly more) and then have a look round the Lerwick lifeboat station and hear how to keep ourselves safe in the water. This should be great fun! We will meet back at the museum car park for pick up at 12.45pm.

    We will be giving a donation to the RNLI on behalf of our service. If you feel you would like to give a small donation, please feel free to send it with your child on the day. There is no pressure to do this though, and no-one should feel excluded from taking part if they don’t have a donation.

    We will be doing this walk regardless of the weather on the day so please send your child in clothes suitable for being outside. Please send a small snack with your child. I will have some spare snack with me in case anyone forgets. Please don’t send anything containing nuts to this group due to allergies.

Please bear with us as we need to make sure we adhere to current guidelines and restrictions. More information about each session will be given closer to the time.

Consent forms will need to be completed (electronically if possible).

Places must be booked for this activity by contacting Laura on [email protected] or 01595 743909 by Friday 27th May 2022.
