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.
A key aim of the CBF is to make sure families get the practical information they need. That’s why we are delighted the National Lottery Community Fund has enabled us to develop a new website as part of our 3 year ‘Getting it Right’ project. The new site is easier to access on phones and tablets, as well as laptops, and is more user-friendly.
Visit the new website at the same web address: www.challengingbehaviour.org.uk
The CBF aims to improve the life opportunities and quality of life for children, young people and adults with severe learning disabilities and their families. We do that by providing information, sharing video guides, offering telephone, email and casework support for family carers, and running workshops. The new website means we can offer families and professionals improved access to our information and resources and help make it easier for everyone to champion rights, raise awareness and promote and share best practice.
Viv Cooper, Chief Executive and founder of the CBF, and parent of a young man with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges said: “The CBF aims to create good local support available to everyone, when they need it; the right support in the right place at the right time. We have worked with a range of partners to ensure that families and professionals can find, read and download practical, evidence-based information quickly, wherever they are.”
“Families have helped us with the website’s design process to ensure it meets their needs. However, we will continue to analyse and improve the site, offering tailored new resources to help anyone supporting children, young people and adults with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges in these difficult times. If you have any comments or suggestions about the new website, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org ”
The new site includes new resources, including up-to-date information sheets and video clips filmed by family carers. Please browse www.challengingbehaviour.org.uk for news, opinion, information, resources, opportunities, and support!
Do you need information about challenging behaviour and connected issues? We have a broad range of information sheets, webpages, packs, templates and DVDs, grouped into different sections.
