Challenging Behaviour Project

Carers Gloucestershire, in partnership with Challenging Behaviour Foundation, is working with families and local organisations as part of the Challenging Behaviour Strategy in these areas:

  • Empowering families to get their voices heard by decision makers.
  • Developing a Family to Family support scheme and train family carer volunteers to act as a listening ear for other family carers.
  • Free family training – Helping families understand their child’s behavior and put strategies to help reduce/improve the intensity by using Positive Behaviour Support
