Brothers and Sisters

Brothers and Sisters

For children and young people from care, who often live away from birth parents, siblings are vital.

We produced the 'Brothers and Sisters' report in response to what children and young people from care have told us about their experiences of contact with their siblings.

The data in this report is based on a questionnaire we carried out about both 'birth' and 'foster' sibling contact.

Here are some key findings:

  • 83% of responders who do not live with their birth siblings would like to see more of them. 38% of responders who do not live with their foster siblings would like to see more of them.
  • 75% of responders with birth siblings have some problems with seeing them compared to 37% who have problems seeing foster siblings.
  • Social workers have been the most helpful and supportive to those trying to maintain contact with birth siblings while those trying to keep in touch with foster siblings believe that foster parents have been the most helpful.
  • 75% of responders with birth siblings would like to see them more frequently. 37% of responders with foster siblings would like to see them more frequently.
