Latest News CROSSCARE YOUTH SERVICES WORK TOGETHER WITH OTHER AGENCIES TO LAUNCH THE SLEEP PROGRAMME

12th March 2018

 A team of inter-agency professionals based in Arklow, Co. Wicklow, including our own East Wicklow Youth Service, have developed a new practical tool for addressing the issue of sleep deprivation with young people.

 The Sleep Programme is recommended for young people aged 12 – 14 as an education and prevention programme. The Sleep Programme provides teachers and youth workers with the tools to support young adults improve or maintain their sleep routine.

 The programme sets out ways to prevent sleep becoming a problem. It addresses areas like stress, diet, physical activity, drug and alcohol use in young people and encourages changes to poor sleep hygiene. The programme aims to provide practical information for young people, which they can then implement in their day to day lives.

 The resource was funded by the National Youth Council of Ireland’s (NYCI) Connected Communities programme.

 ‘The Sleep Programme’ is available for download here and also from www.kwetb.ie and www.docchildandfamily.ie.
