What does PBS do?

PBS enables groups of carers (family carer and/or paid carers);

1.  To understand the needs and behaviour of children and/or adults, who, because of intellectual and/or developmental disability, are vulnerable to develop behaviours that challenge and remain dependent on others to meet fundamental needs

2. To work together, in order to promote a meaningful quality of life, for both the person and those who care for them.
