Scope Launches New Sleep Right Service

Helping disabled children and their parents get a better night’s rest

Sleep Right is a new service run by disability equality charity Scope that supports parents of disabled children, aged two to 18, who are experiencing sleep issues.

Most families with babies and young children will experience sleepless nights at some stage. Disabled children, however, are more likely to experience unsettled sleep, with figures estimating 60% to 80% of disabled children not managing to get the sleep they need.

The service is headed by Maxine McCulloch, herself a mother of a disabled boy. Maxine says: “I know too well how the effects of continual sleepless impacts on the entire family.

“George, was three when he decided that 3am was the time to get up each day. Luckily I had just completed my Sleep Practitioner training so knew what I needed to do.

“The Sleep Right team are there to support families just like mine and I know how important that support is. I urge any parent whose disabled child is having sleep problems to get in touch with Sleep Right.”

Parents will be supported by a sleep practitioner who understands first hand, what they’re experiencing. If you need help from a Sleep Right practitioner, you can refer yourself by visiting https://www.scope.org.uk/sleep-right
