PBS Community of Practice for Scotland

The PBS Community of Practice for Scotland is launching on 4 June 2020 with a launch webinar taking place at 2pm, hosted by the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability.

Following the publication of the Coming Home report in 2018, the Scottish Government made a commitment to develop a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Community of Practice (CoP) for Scotland. This webinar will introduce the PBS Community of Practice for Scotland.

The community of practice hopes to become a national focal point for all those who have an interest in PBS and its use to support people with learning disabilities.
