Help par­ents en­joy a good night’s sleep


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Kensington -

MOST of us know how a good night’s sleep can im­prove our mind, thoughts and at­ti­tude.

But for many par­ents of young chil­dren, a good night’s sleep is a dis­tant mem­ory, so for the first time in more than 100 years, Ngala is seek­ing pub­lic help for its ‘Give Any­thing For a Good Night’s Sleep’ cam­paign.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is hold­ing a spe­cial fundrais­ing day on Novem­ber 21 and or­gan­is­ers are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to fundraise in the lead-up.

Ngala chief ex­ec­u­tive Ash­ley Reid said Ngala was seek­ing sup- port so more WA fam­i­lies could ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits of a good night’s sleep in re­duc­ing stress, fa­tigue and ac­ci­dents and feel­ing more con­fi­dent about parenting.

“Ev­ery par­ent knows what it’s like in those early months when ad­just­ing to a new­born baby and there are times when you re­ally would give any­thing for a good night’s sleep,” he said.

“Ev­ery do­na­tion made, large or small, will help to ex­pand and main­tain our qual­ity pro­grams.”
