Why we need your help
Sleep Scotland is a charity founded in 1998 to address the sleep problems of children and young people with disabilities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. The charity was created to fill a gap in existing services and today Sleep Scotland remains the only organisation in Scotland to provide help, support and training specifically on sleep.
Without the availability of such help and support, the health and wellbeing of entire families would continue to suffer significantly from the consequences of sleep deprivation.
Sleep Scotland’s aims are:
2) To increase the chances of children and young people to reach their potential.
3) To raise awareness of the impact of sleep deprivation on the health and wellbeing of families nation-wide.
To deliver our aims, Sleep Scotland provides the following services:
1. Sleep Counselling
Sleep counsellors trained by Sleep Scotland provide intensive face-to-face sleep counselling to families of children and young people with additional support needs.
2. Sleep Counsellor training
Sleep Scotland trains professionals in the management of sleep problems of children and young people across the UK and Ireland.
3. Sleep Education training
Sleep Scotland trains teachers and other professionals to deliver sleep education in primary and secondary schools, providing them with the unique Sound Sleep Teaching Resource Pack.
4. Sleep Support line
The dedicated Freephone Sleep Support service line provides advice and support for all families with children and young people in Scotland aged between 18 months and 18 years.
