Sleep Scotland’s Sleep Support Line provides advice, guidance, and support for the parents and guardians of children and young people with sleep problems. We have increased the number of calls received recently and so are looking at recruiting additional Tier 2 Sleep Counsellors to the team, particularly those with experience of working with older children and teenagers.

As a Tier 2 Sleep Counsellor, you would provide sleep support over the phone to the parents and guardians of children and young people with additional support needs and sleep problems, who do not have a Sleep Counsellor in their area to provide face to face support. Through a series of phone calls, you will work with families to take a sleep history and develop a sleep programme.
