How does the CBF support families?
Family Support Service
The Family Support Service can provide information and support about the needs of your family member with a severe learning disability. Our support is confidential, and we won’t judge you or tell you what to do.
Family Carers’ Email Network
The CBF Family Carers’ Email Network enables you to be in touch with a number of families around the UK. You can share experiences, information and receive support – without any obligation to reply or to identify yourself.
The CBF is offering free peer support for family carers from your own homes during the Coronavirus pandemic. Click on the link below to read about ‘Peer support calls’ and ‘Carers’ Catch Ups’.
Information and guidance
The CBF provides information about challenging behaviour and connected issues through its broad range of information sheets, FAQs, packs, templates and DVDs, grouped into different sections.
News and stories
The CBF writes topical articles regularly, providing opinion and resources for families. Search the news section for our news and ‘Your stories’, the latter featuring articles written by family carers on issues they’ve experienced.
The Challenging Behaviour Foundation’s newsletter ‘Challenge‘ is produced three times a year, always in an electronic form and sometimes also as a printed copy. Subscription is free of charge.
