Survivors Manchester run a drop in for domestic abuse survivors weekly.
In 1981 a small group of parents, who were experiencing problems with their crying and sleepless babies, set up a support group. They discovered how important support is and how reassuring it can be to talk to someone. Today that support group has become Cry-sis, the only UK charity offering help and support to parents with babies who cry excessively or have sleeping problems. From modest beginnings Cry-sis has become a well-respected national charity which:
provides a telephone helpline available 7 days a week from 9.00am until 10.00pm.
offers advice and information on how to cope with a sleepless baby and/or a crying baby.
conducts research and increases public awareness.
