The Challenging Behaviour Foundation exists to demonstrate that individuals with severe learning disabilities who are described as having challenging behaviour can enjoy normal life opportunities when their behaviour is properly understood and they receive appropriate individualised support.
The CBF will support families, professionals and other stakeholders through education, information, research and partnership working to enable this to happen and will work strategically to influence national policy and practice.
Our aims are:
To provide information and support to parents and professionals caring for individuals with severe learning disabilities and challenging behaviour
To demonstrate how local service provision for individuals with severe learning disabilities and challenging behaviour can be improved, and to actively facilitate such provision on a national basis
To highlight the needs of those with challenging behaviour and to influence policy on their behalf
To promote research into challenging behaviour associated with severe learning disabilities and to disseminate the results of such research so that practical benefits are gained
We believe that we can achieve most by working together. We look forward to working with you.
