The Centre for the Advancement of Positive Behaviour Support 

The UK’s leading resource for PBS and Active Support services


The Centre for the Advancement of Positive Behaviour Support (CAPBS) at BILD was created to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills in the learning disability sector around positive behaviour support.

What does the Centre do?

The Centre acts as a think tank and a forum, and helps inform the strategic direction for BILD’s mission to reduce the use of restrictive practices and to learn from international practice.
It develops resources that can be used by individuals, families, academics and professionals to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities and their supporters, globally.
The Centre connects people, contributes to professional development and understanding and supports collaboration with a shared purpose.

Who is it for?

For members of BILD, and for academics, professionals, individuals, family members and supporters of people with learning disabilities, as well as government agencies and organisations whose aims are to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities, particularly those who are labelled as having ‘challenging’ behaviour or behaviours of concern. 

Working in partnership

The Centre works in partnership with the University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Excellence, alongside a group of international academic and practitioner advisors who are leaders in the field of Positive Behaviour Support.
