During this period of Lockdown many of us are having trouble sleeping and its no surprise with COVID-19 being a worrying time. 
 
A new survey commissioned by three leading bodies championing sleep, ‘Sleepstation’, ‘The Sleep Council’ and ‘The Sleep Charity’, report that 43% are now finding it harder to fall asleep, with unease around the current COVID-19 situation affecting sleep for 75%. Interestingly, it also found that women are more likely to suffer from anxiety associated with coronavirus and are twice as likely to report feeling stressed compared to men. 
 
Sleep can be disturbed in many ways with feelings such as feeling restless, waking up during the night, wide awake, having nightmares and finding it hard to relax and switch off. Sleep is so important for our health and well-being, it can affect memory, immune system, energy levels, mood, appetite, your mental health and even your happiness! So, we perhaps need to make some changes to our day to get sleeping better and in turn feeling better. 
 
Local Support 
Birmingham City council has joined forces with BVSC to create the C19 Support Brum partnership, an initiative that will work through existing local neighbourhood structures, voluntary groups, and local elected members to ensure that all parts of the city have access to support, advice, and practical help.

Hi to all our community and friends of Cerebral Palsy Midlands, it is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our dear friend and service user, Thomas Slee. Thomas passed away peacefully in the early hours of Wednesday morning and was 69 years of age. 
 
We are informed that his passing is NOT due to the present COVID 19 pandemic. Thomas had, had previous health problems and always showed strength, determination and a fighting spirit. As you can imagine, this is an extremely difficult time with us all isolated at our homes, we will miss you Thomas and our thoughts are with you and your lovely sister and brother in-law. RIP
