What we do

Support

If your child is struggling to sleep it can be exhausting for them and for the whole family.

Training

We offer a variety of courses for professionals working with typically developing children and young people and those with additional support needs.

Education

Getting the right amount of sleep is as important as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
