Sleep Scotland is rolling out our free Sleep Support Line to provide on-the-spot guidance to parents and guardians struggling with their children’s and teenagers’ sleep problems. This includes, but is not limited to, mainstream, or typically developing, children and teenagers, who previously could not access our services.
The line will, for the first time, give all families across Scotland access to free support from Sleep Scotland’s experienced sleep counsellors, thanks to a grant from The Big Lottery Fund Scotland. Parents and carers will be able to seek tailored advice on sleep for their children, from sleepless toddlers to teenagers dealing with exam-stress and the distractions of social media. Details of the service, including opening hours and how to contact us, can be found here. If you are unable to call during those times, or require an alternative to using the telephone, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange an alternative.
There is a lot of interesting research being done at the moment on teenagers and sleep. Our CEO, Jane, was on STV News Tonight yesterday (21/2/18) to discuss.
