The Sibling Engagement Network will consist of brothers and sisters of individuals with intellectual disabilities who are interested in joining. Siblings do not have to be currently living in Newfoundland and Labrador; they can be residing anywhere. In the coming months, we plan to collect the contact information of many of brothers and sisters and start the communication process. Communication at first, will be virtual, through email, Facebook, etc., and as the Network expands we anticipate with the aid of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association for Community Living (NLACL) we may be able to have a “get-together” to discuss emerging issues.
What we are looking to achieve:
If you would like to become a member or know someone who would like to join the NLACL Sibling Engagement Network, please contact Jenna Gill:
