    The British Institute for Learning Disabilities (BILD) has launched a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) helpline, which aims to provide support to families and carers of people with learning disabilities, mental health issues or autistic people, during COVID-19.

    People who are looking for help and support can use the phone line to gain reassurance that they are doing the right thing, talk through ideas and receive practical suggestions.

    The helpline has been funded by the Department of Health and Social Care.

    Maybo perspective

    Any extra help and support is welcomed during these challenging times when the imposing of restrictions and changes to routines can easily become a flashpoint. Focusing on person-centred active support and the building of positive relationships can help to improve relationships and reduce the number of adverse incidents requiring intervention.
