Today is the start of Sleep Week and we will be releasing the results of our survey in partnership with Netmums. The findings demonstrate how sleep deprivation impacts on mental health as well as the number of families in need of sleep support nationally.

On Tuesday The Children's Sleep Charity will be launching our Sleep Manifesto for Children and Young People at the House of Commons.  We will be joined by some key speakers including; Jenny Edwards, Chief Executive of The Mental Health Foundation, Annie O'Leary, Editor in Chief of Netmums and Professor Heather Elphick, our Chair of Trustees.

The Sleep Manifesto outlines 3 key measures which if implemented could make a tremendous difference in transforming outcomes for children, young people and their families. You will be able to download our manifesto on Tuesday evening from our website.

Please help us to raise awareness for our campaign by sharing our Facebook badge that will also be available alongside our manifesto. 

As a charity we are inundated with requests for support from families who are often at crisis point. Now is the time for sleep to be at the heart of everyone's agenda in order to support the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of children and families.

Please show your support all week by sharing our daily messages below on Facebook and Twitter. We will be using #sleepmatters across the week and #sleepmanifesto on Tuesday.  Please tag us in your posts.
