The Sleep Charity sold out event marks World Sleep Day

The growing recognition of the importance of sleep is being celebrated by The Sleep Charity on World Sleep Day.

The charity is hosting its first online conference for parents and professions today, and Sleep Well Lincolnshire is fully booked with 100 people taking part.

Aiming to explore how early intervention sleep support helps children, young people and their families, a selection of speakers will cover topics ranging from the importance of sleep hygiene to teen sleep, how diet impacts on children and young peoples’ sleep and the nature of dreaming.

The keynote speaker will be Dr Simon Durrant whose positions include director of the Lincoln Sleep Research Centre and Treasurer of the British Sleep Society. His talk will look at how much sleep we need and what happens when we don’t get enough.

Nathalie Winn from Waitrose will talk about how diet impacts on children and young peoples’ sleep. Vicki Dawson, The Sleep Charity ceo; Lisa Artis, The Sleep Charity deputy ceo and Jessica Alexander, National Bed Federation executive director will also give presentations.

‘We’re incredibly excited to be holding our first virtual conference which has generated an enormous amount of interest among both parents and professionals. As well as a cracking line up of speakers, we’ll be talking about the success of our Teen Sleep Hub and Young Person’s Journal plus how the charity uses its successful behavioural approach to sleep in its one-to-one clinics along with the importance of the bedroom environment,’ says Dawson.
