The KIDS South Bank Sleep Service is funded by Humber Transforming Care Partnership.

Children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are far more likely than their peers to have sleep problems.

These may include difficulty going to sleep, waking frequently throughout the night or waking easily in the morning.

Our highly experienced senior sleep practitioners deliver sector specific training, including early years and primary school training to all professionals working with children from age one year, where the child lives in North or North East Lincolnshire or has a GP in this area. Training is offered online or face-to-face.

In addition, we accept referrals for children where parents would like one-to-one specialist sleep clinic support. Parents are provided with advice, a sleep plan and support via telephone calls.

For enquiries, to book training or to refer a family, please email:

E-Learning (

It is our role as professionals to help young people to move into adulthood with opportunities to participate in our local community while maintaining their health and wellbeing, and with opportunities that suit them.

It is important that all professionals understand the whole network of services that are meaningful to parents and carers and children and young people throughout this time. From education and employment, to money, social care, and transport, there’s a lot to consider.

That’s is why we are holding a series of question and answer sessions for professionals that bring together education settings and services.

Watch the Q&A with an overview of the preparing for adulthood protocol and pathways, and speakers from Linkage College and Focus (adult social care).

Parents and carers and children and young people should know about the Preparing for Adult page. NELC SEND Local Offer | Preparing for adulthood and transition to adult life (

There is a range of training for new and experienced professionals working with children and young people at different stages of their education.

You can learn to better support students and families, work with others within your educational setting and from other settings, and to perfect key practices like inclusion and Preparation for Adulthood.
