Theatre workshop for siblings
Published: January 25, 2015
Members from our younger siblings group enjoyed a lively workshop at the Half Moon Theatre in Limehouse last weekend.
The group, which meets monthly, watched a play about caring, before taking part in a fun workshop to find out more about the themes raised in the play.
The day was one of a number of events that theatre is running for Richard House families this year. Rachel Flower, activity coordinator at Richard House said: “Half Moon Theatre is a lovely place for the siblings to visit and the staff there are brilliant at providing enjoyable and interesting sessions, whether at Richard House or at the theatre, which are enjoyed by all attending. The show was a highlight, really well thought out and dealing with a difficult situation in a way young siblings could understand and enjoy.”
The younger siblings group is one of two support groups for siblings of children and young adults with life-limiting conditions at Richard House. Members take part in therapeutic projects and activities aimed at supporting them deal with the emotions brought up by having a sibling who has a life-limiting or life-threatening health condition. The environment is positive and they are able to meet and have lots of fun with others in a similar situation.
