National Sleep Helpline
At any given time up to 40% of adults and 50% of children (this rises to 80% with a SEND diagnosis) have difficulties with their sleep. Yet in a recent survey, almost 60% of adults felt there was a lack of support for sleep issues. Sleep problems can leave people feeling isolated and lonely.
Our free helpline is run by trained sleep advisors, many of whom are specialists in working with SEND. We can talk to young people directly, or parents (we can also talk to adults, including older people, about their sleep issues).
The helpline is open 5 times a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday evenings 7-9pm, and Monday, Wednesday mornings 9-11am. The number is 03303 530 541.

Cycle Hub at Elmdon Park
The cycle hub, (situated by Elmdon Church, B92 9EJ), has several bikes (and helmets) that can be borrowed for group rides. Our next ride will be on Saturday 7th October.
It will be a family-friendly guided ride in a traffic-free environment. We want to encourage local families to take advantage of free cycling opportunities in the area. There will be another ride taking place in this location on Saturday 21st October - https://www.letsride.co.uk/rides/beginner-friendly-bike-ride-from-elmdon-park-8
Please note, that although we have plenty of adult bikes, we only have a limited number of children’s bikes (they are suited for children who are 8 or older). Those younger than 8 can still attend our rides however they will need to bring their own bikes.
Additional information relating to upcoming cycling events including children’s ‘get pedalling’ sessions in the October half-term can be found on the following webpage.
