Read your stories about the experiences of other families and carers of people with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenge
- You can call the Family Support Service on 0300 666 0126
- Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are open at the following times:
- Monday – Thursday: 9am – 5pm
- Friday: 9am – 3pm
We offer information about challenging behaviour to anyone who provides support to a child, young person or adult with a severe learning disability. We can also signpost you to other specialist organisations and sources of information.
Please note we are a small charity and have one Family Support Worker available each day. This could mean you are not able to get support straight away. We will support families with urgent concerns as a priority.
The Family Support Service is not a crisis service. If you are in crisis or our service is closed please see here for other organisations that may be able to support you.
Don’t speak English?
Speak to the CBF in your language.
The CBF receives calls from families from diverse backgrounds. We have an interpreting service available to families whose first language is not English. The CBF will arrange for an interpreter to join the call to translate the conversation. This is a free and confidential service. If you or someone you know would like to use the interpreting service, please let us know so we can arrange this for you.
The CBF is only able to support people who care for someone with a severe or profound learning disability. For people caring for someone with a mild or moderate learning disability or other disability, sources of support and information are listed in our directory here.
