Sibshops are best described as opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context.  Sibshops are lively, pedal-to-the-metal celebrations of the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of children with special needs.  Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many somewhere in between.  

Sibshops seek to provide siblings with opportunities for peer support.  Because Sibshops are designed (primarily) for school-age children, peer support is provided within a lively, recreational context that emphasises a child’s eye view.
