CBF Listening Ear
Verified service

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) is the only UK charity specifically focussed on the needs of children and adults with severe learning disabilities whose behaviour challenges, and their families.

The CBF are now offering support calls from a fellow family carer who is trained in active listening.

Sometimes it helps to ‘offload’ to someone who understands what you are going through. This is not a counselling, information or advice service. These one hour telephone calls will be purely a listening ear, giving you the time to talk. The support is non-judgmental and confidential.

Open to parents, siblings or other close relatives of children, young people or adults with severe learning disabilities who display behaviour that challenges.

Service access criteria: Suitable for over 18s caring for a child, young person or adult who has a severe learning disability and display behaviours described as challenging. We are unable to support where the person has a mild or moderate learning disability or a diagnosis of autism without a learning disability.
