We are very grateful to The Good Exchange and Greenham Trust for funding this workshop. It will be lead by specialist sleep practitioner Helen Cattermole and co-hosted by Jennie Kettell. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.

If you haven’t attended a Zoom webinar before you may find this information helpful. We will be using the Q&A/Chat function to allow you to ask questions during the workshop. The webinars are best viewed on a PC or laptop. Please have the latest version of Zoom installed. You can download the software here. Zoom will ask you to register/sign in to the webinar so please allow time for this before the webinar starts.

**Unfortunately we have an increasing number of clients who book events but do not attend (DNA) nor cancel. DNA’s have a negative impact on our ability to secure repeat funding and we are required to put measures in place to reduce them. Therefore, it has become necessary to charge booking deposits for our free events. This deposit will be refunded after attendance. Eventbrite booking fees are non-refundable. If you wish you may opt to donate your booking deposit to PSC. Please choose the appropriate ticket when booking. Thank you for your understanding.**
