Sheep Dreams Campaign

We are delighted to announce that Shaun the Sheep™ is our official sheepy sleep ambassador for our "Sheep Dreams” campaign. "Sheep Dreams" is the campaign to help families to enjoy the benefits of a good night's sleep.

The Wake Up Call

On 4th March 2020 we joined forces with The Sleep Council to launch our sleep manifesto. We urge the government to wake up to the importance of sleep and to ensure that sleep becomes a key issue on the Public Health agenda.

Welcome to
The Sleep Charity!

We are an award-winning charity established to help the nation to get a good night’s sleep. We provide accredited training for professionals, support for families and packages for corporate organisations.

Our Aims

We aim to help the nation sleep better to support mental and physical wellbeing, by providing practical advice and support.

We are raising awareness about the importance of sleep and campaigning for change so that sleep support is accessible to all.

Our Work

Our work is based on the latest research and is evidence based. We have a team of experts who input into our training materials and courses.

We believe in sharing sleep knowledge widely so that those having sleep issues are empowered to make the changes that they want to make. We work in partnership with families to develop programmes that are gentle and respect their parenting style as well as providing training for professionals and corporate organisations.

Help us out

Without the generous donations from our supporters, we couldn’t continue to offer help and support to families, so thank you.

What people say

“Thanks to the work of The Sleep Charity, family’s’ lives are improved on a daily basis. Sleep deprivation plays a huge rule in mental wellbeing at all ages, but especially for children. Poor sleep is a major risk factor in all mental health problems. By supporting children to get a better night’s sleep, the Sleep Charity is establishing routines that will have a positive impact on the rest of their lives. I am proud to support this charity and their important work.”

“Our partnership with The Children’s Sleep Charity is crucial because our members see first-hand the impact of sleep deprivation in a child. Quality sleep promotes healthy childhood development and the charity provides invaluable advice to both early years practitioners and parents. By working together we have a collective aim of providing accurate and up to date information and expertise, to equip childcare professionals in supporting parents and children to help them all get a good night’s sleep. ”

Chief Executive, Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years

“Thanks and praise for all help given to me. My son is 2.5 and has never slept since been a baby. I have had sleepless nights since go and no matter what I did nothing changed. The Sleep Charity helped me change my son's routine and gave tips and advice on what to do. There was an improvement within days. I now have a happy, intelligent little boy who amazingly sometimes asks to go to bed because he's tired. I'm a happy, calmer mummy who has stopped crying most nights from sheer exhaustion and we can now spend happy days as a family without us all being tired and grumpy from horrific nights! I highly recommend anyone struggling to speak with yourselves, you not only give brilliant advice but you see it through. One very happy mummy!”
