About Tired Out

Night terrors

At Family Fund we believe that all families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people should have the same opportunities as others.

Family Fund's 2013 report Tired all the Time asked families from across the UK about how sleep problems affect them and their disabled children.

Families told us that they want to be listened to and heard and also to have better access to sleep help, information and support.

Parents, carers, siblings and wider family members, told us that they experience huge challenges as a direct result of sleep deprivation. They told us that they want to be listened to, heard and also be better able to access sleep help, information, and support.

Following this, Family Fund wanted to do more to help. Our idea was to could try and put all the information and resources we could find into one place. This might make it easier for everyone to see what is available and gain access to vital sleep help and support: that is the purpose of Tired Out.

We are continually working with partner organisations to gather information and services to put on Tired Out, but we would also like you to tell us of any support you have received, products that you use, sleeping tips you know of, or information that has helped.

So please share your information and sleep experiences with us, point us to anything you've found useful (or not!) and tell us what you want to see on this site.

You can do this by emailing us at tiredout@familyfund.org.uk
