What Good Support Looks Like

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation has produced several resources to show what good support looks like for people with severe learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges, and several tools to help families find good support.


Resources and Examples of Good Support

Meeting the Challenge 2: What does good support look like for adults with learning disabilities who display challenging behaviour

One of the 'Meeting the Challenge' guides produced by the Challenging Behaviour Foundation, alongside Mencap and Respond. This factsheet describes what ‘good support’ should include for people with learning disabilities whose behaviour is described as challenging. Good support will help the person lead a full, active life and help avoid challenging behaviour escalating into a crisis.

DVD Everybody Matters

Everybody Matters is a short film starring Colleen and Shaun, both of whom have learning disabilities and have been described as displaying challenging behaviour. This has meant that in the past both Shaun and Colleen have experienced poor support and had restricted, unhappy and sometimes unsafe lives. Their stories show that everyone can be supported to live a full and active life in their community.Click here to find out more and watch the trailer.


Positive Behavioural Support  An Information Pack for Family Carers  

This pack of resources aims to provide information about Positive Behavioural Support (PBS). It explains what it is; what it looks like in practice; provides questions to ask to check that PBS is being delivered well in the setting you are looking at and guidance on how family carers can find out more including advice on training.
