The Challenging Behaviour Charter sets out the rights of the people with learning disability and the action that needs to be taken. Find out how to sign up.
Get involved in our projects
The Challenging Behaviour Foundation aims to improve lives for individuals with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges. One of the ways we do this is through special ‘demonstration’ projects. These try out new approaches and encourage others to learn from this work and improve their practices.
We aim to include the views of individuals with severe learning disabilities and their family carers in all our projects.
If you want to get involved in an existing project or find out more, or if you have a suggestion for a new area of work please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01634 838739 for an informal discussion.
Have your say
We are currently looking for family carers to be involved in:
The CBF and Tizard ‘Family Carer Research Alliance’; co-producing better research
The Family Carer Research Alliance brings together family carers of people with a learning or developmental disability and researchers to develop and discuss research.
Do you want to involve families in your research project?
The CBF supports research benefitting children and adults with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour is described as challenging. We do this by contributing to steering groups, helping with dissemination and supporting the involvement of a family carer perspective.
With our networks and connections to over five thousand families of people with a learning disability, we are able to offer prospective research projects assistance in involving family carers. Family carers not only provide a valuable and unique perspective on your research topic but they can also be a great help in many other ways including making the language and content of information provided more appropriate and accessible; helping to ensure the method proposed for the study is acceptable and sensitive to the situations of potential research participants. At the Challenging Behaviour Foundation we want to use our strengths in partnership working with families to benefit your research.
