Sleep advice service
Our dedicated sleep service is here to help.
Alongside our Sleep Tips booklet and relevant guides, we also offer one-to-one support. This involves completing an application form for your child and two weeks’ worth of sleep diaries which we'll send out to you as long as you come under our criteria for support.
If you need one-to-one support and are a parent/carer or a professional referring a family with their consent to having sleep support, please click the button below to contact the sleep service.
If you have a question or query about our services please email us at [email protected].
