New Sleep Clinics

Posted on

17 September 2014


If you are a parent or carer of a child with additional needs in Calderdale, and sleepless nights are a regular occurrence for your family, there could be a solution, right on your doorstep.
Local charity, Calderdale Parents and Carers (CPC), has a team of dedicated sleep practitioners who run regular ‘sleep clinics’ to help children who suffer from sleep problems, and their families.
At these free clinics, which start on 25th September at the CPC offices on Hanson Lane, Halifax, the practitioners, or ‘sleep fairies’ as they are affectionately known, can design a personalised sleep programme based on the needs of the family. Alternatively, they can visit a family at home.
Amanda Goulding, Chief Executive of Calderdale Parents and Carers said: “Our aim is to help parents and carers of disabled children or those with additional needs achieve the best possible outcomes. Sleep is vital to our wellbeing, so sleep deprivation can have a massive effect on a child and their family.
At our free sleep clinics, our sleep practitioners can offer professional advice and support on the methods a family can use to help their child with their sleep problems, as well as create a sleep programme designed especially for that family’s needs.”
The first sleep clinic will be Thursday 25 September between 9am and 12pm. Following that they will take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month: 25 September, 23 October, 27 November, 22 January.
