SOS Children's Villages International: Because we are sisters and brothers - Sibling relations in alternative care

The organisation is convinced that brothers and sisters should be able to stay together, unless it is not what is best for them.

“Because we are sisters and brothers” describes the most important outcomes of research activities and documentations about sibling relations in alternative care from five different countries. The SOS Children’s Villages associations in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Spain worked on the topic, and together they developed the content for this publication.

The articles and recommendations are the result of studies done within SOS Children’s Villages in cooperation with external experts and universities. The purpose is to draw attention to the importance of sibling relations – a topic which too often has been underestimated.
