Sleep Scotland is proud to announce the launch of their new Sleep Support Line across Edinburgh and the Lothians. The Sleep Support Line provides immediate advice, guidance, and support for the parents and guardians of children and young people with sleep problems. The line, which is open from Monday to Thursday, was set up to meet the increasing demand of families from across the country for whom their child’s poor sleep is disrupting their day to day lives. The service will be rolled out across Scotland later in the year. Families can contact the support team on 0800 138 6565.
We have recently started a new project in collaboration with Adoption UK. The project is designed to train the parents, carers, and professionals involved in the care of care-experienced children about sleep. Getting to sleep can be particularly hard for children who have had a difficult start to life. Part of the project will see Sleep Scotland offering workshops for parents and carers. These workshops will be held across Scotland. Keep an eye out for more details in the next few months…
There will be free sleep advice sessions for parents in Midlothian from January to March 2017.
Who can attend?
Parents of children aged 6 months to 5 years old
