BILD's Positive Behaviour Support Mission

The Mission's intention is to make commitments addressing the following issues and concerns in our work on positive behaviour support:

  1. Make sure that all people with learning disabilities can exercise their human rights and be valued members of their local communities

  2. Focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups including; People with complex needs; People from black, minority and ethnic communities; people with autism; offenders and those in the judicial system.

  3. Work in partnership with families, carers, friends and the key individuals in people’s lives.

  4. Ensure that people’s individual communication needs are positively addressed.

  5. Develop an evidence base for practice.

  6. Develop a framework of good practice guidance that focuses on positive behaviour support and person-centred planning.

  7. Identify, disseminate and promote good practice in reducing the use of restrictive practices and the implementation of positive behaviour support.

  8. Educate all stakeholders that the use of restrictive practices is potentially dangerous.

  9. Eliminate the use of unnecessary restrictive and aversive practice.

  10. Ensure appropriate training and learning opportunities are available for all staff and supporters.
