The Challenging Behaviour Foundation
The Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) is a charity specialising in severe learning disabilities and behaviour described as challenging. Established by a family carer, we work with families and professionals supporting children and adults across the UK.

For family carers we provide practical information and support about everything from reducing challenging behaviour to finding sturdy furniture, and workshops on understanding challenging behaviour and supporting behaviour change
For researchers we help support research projects
We’re looking for new volunteers!
We are looking for family carers who would like to get involved in supporting other families facing similar challenges.
We know that caring for someone with severe learning disabilities who displays behaviour described as challenging can be very stressful and isolating. Having someone at the other end of the phone offering support can make a huge difference.
Our family link volunteers offer a listening ear from someone who understands.
If you’re a parent, brother, sister or close relative of someone with severe learning disabilities who displays behaviour described as challenging, we’d love to hear from you.
You can call 01634 838739 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat about volunteering.
