About Sleep & Dream Foundation


Sleep & Dream Foundation Ltd is a registered charity based in Australia. We support organisations that care for young people who have suffered trauma or have developmental difficulties. Many of these children experience trouble sleeping and this lack of restful sleep compounds their issues and hinders recovery.

Our founding Director is Holistic Sleep Therapist, Ahna de Vena, whose memories of childhood sleeplessness inspired the creation of our Sleep Kit for Kids.

How we make a difference

Sleep & Dream Foundation supplies partner organisations with free Sleep Kits and provides ongoing training and guidance in their use. Created especially for children, the Sleep Kit contains proven, successful strategies to aid relaxation, allay fear and provide comfort. The outcome is a more peaceful bedtime for the children and their carers, and better quality rest for everyone.

The organisations we’re currently working with include: Life without Barriers, The Smith Family, Lismore Women’s Health & Resource Centre, It Takes A Town, OTCP-On Track Community Programs, St Vincent de Paul, and Women Up North Housing.

Our vision is to expand our reach to an ever-widening range of organisations—so that Australia’s most vulnerable children can sleep, heal and thrive. As our work is funded solely by donations, we appreciate your support in helping to make this vision a reality.

Imagine a world where all children feel safe and peaceful enough to sleep well.

With your help we can make this a reality.

 All donations are tax-deductible in Australia.
