Sleep

Your donations fund a narcolepsy fun day, providing support to children and families throughout the north who are experiencing this rare condition.

Did you know?

Our hospital has the leading sleep service in the UK and a ground-breaking sleep study programme helps over 800 families and children with chronic sleep problems each year.

How have you helped?

Your donations helped to establish the sleep team at Sheffield Children’s Hospital with staff, specialist medical equipment and patient days.

Who have you helped?

The service sees children and young people who have severe sleep problems, like 14-year-old Sam, who developed narcolepsy and catalepsy when he was four years old. The care he has received prompted his great-aunt Hilda to leave a life-changing donation to further its research.
