Sleep Support Line

Sleep Scotland’s free Sleep Support Line provides 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 gives 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.

To access this support, parents, carers, or teenagers should contact us on 0800 138 6565, Monday to Thursday, 10am to 4pm. If you are unable to call during those times, or require an alternative to using the telephone, please email us at sleepsupport@sleepscotland.org and we will arrange an alternative. BSL users can contact the service using contactSCOTLAND-BSL
