Adoption UK project


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…
