Help Is Just A Phone Call Away

Sep 16, 2021

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve launched a brand new dedicated helpline for adults, young people and children who struggle to sleep.

The average UK adult suffers nine bad nights’ sleep per month* – equating to around 500 MILLION across the country each month, but there is limited support.

To combat the problem, we have teamed up with high street retailer Furniture Village to launch a national helpline providing assistance to anyone with sleep difficulties. It will be operated by specialist, trained advisors between 7pm and 9pm five days a week, Sunday to Thursday.

They will provide callers with helpful tips and advice so they can identify appropriate strategies, talk through their problems and try and point them in the direction of other organisations and services for specialist or long-term support.

Lack of sleep affects mental health, work performance and can lead to alcohol misuse.

Almost 60 per cent of those surveyed felt that there was a lack of support for their sleep issues, which is why we have partnered with Furniture Village to set up the UK’s first National Sleep Helpline. Together we want to ensure that everyone has access to high quality, evidence-based advice regardless of age, ethnicity, background or income.

The helpline will be available to anyone experiencing sleep difficulties, with the team listening to callers with empathy and providing evidence-based sleep information.
