Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) North East and Cumbria
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.
