About

What We Do

The Sleep Charity, incorporating The Sleep Council, provide advice and support to empower the nation to sleep better.

We campaign to improve sleep support and access to high quality information, raise awareness of the value of a good night’s sleep and promote understanding around the complexities of sleep.

We want everyone to share our vision that sleep is a vital component of health and wellbeing and that everyone living with sleep issues should have access to effective, consistent, evidence-based support.
