Cry-Sis

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.

 

The Dadsnet Local Community Group

Dadsnet is for dads to be able to gain support from each other within a private setting but in the Local Community Groups you can speak with people nearby; we’ve discussed local schools, we’ve had meetups – with and without the kids, and just generally look after one another on here.
