TRAINING FOR PARENTS

Our sleep workshops aim to support you to make positive changes to your child’s sleep patterns. They are delivered by trained professionals many of who have been sleep deprived parents in the past!

Workshops can provide you with the opportunity to meet other families in similar situations and to gain tips on how to support a better night’s sleep for you and your child.

Sleep Tight

Sleep Tight is a parenting programme, we train Family Support workers to effectively deliver their own 5 week workshop directly to families within their community.  The course ensures that workers are skilled in offering sleep support that is safe and based on the latest research. Course materials are provided and offer a step by step approach to delivering the training in localities. .

Sleep Tight was recently independently evaluated by Nottingham University, the findings were published in the Journal of Health Visiting.   On average, children had 2.5 hours more sleep per night after the intervention. Parents reported changes in family life and child's daytime behaviour. The findings support the use of Sleep Tight as an effective, time-limited behavioural sleep programme. This course is accredited with the CPD Standards Office and the evaluation can be read here
