We use Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) to support individuals who may be described as exhibiting ‘challenging behaviours’.

The Specialist Support team devise PBS plans which provide staff with a step-by-step guide to making sure the person they support has a great quality of life linked to maximised choice and control and is able to communicate effectively.

PBS helps people to get the life they want by giving them as much choice, freedom, autonomy and independence as they are comfortable with. It also acknowledges that to do so will involve being supported in new ways and may well involve increased (but measured) risk taking.

PBS recognises that people may need help to cope with these situations, from key individuals, including their staff team, and family and friends that support and know the individual well.
