Sleep Scotland’s free Sleep Support Line provides on-the-spot guidance to parents and guardians struggling with their children’s and teenagers’ sleep problems. This includes, but is not limited to, mainstream, or typically developing, children and teenagers, who previously could not access our services. The line gives all families across Scotland access to free support from Sleep Scotland’s experienced sleep counsellors, thanks to a grant from The Big Lottery Fund Scotland. Parents and carers will be able to seek tailored advice on sleep for their children, from sleepless toddlers to teenagers dealing with exam-stress and the distractions of social media.

This is a Scottish wide campaign to stop young people being given Tobacco. Most young people who smoke get their cigarettes from friends, family and other people they know which can then lead them into a life of addiction, ill health and money worries.
The Campaign is part of a wider effort for Scotland to become “tobacco free” by 2034.
