Positive Behaviour Support

We have a dedicated Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) team, supporting adults with autism, learning disabilities and mental health conditions who present challenging behaviours.

In all our supported living placements as well as outreach and domiciliary support, the PBS approach is being embedded. Individuals are encouraged to be as self-reliant and safe as possible by promoting person-centred, educational, proactive, and respectful care.


Our PBS Approach To Support:

As part of the PBS process, our team will determine the relationship between the behaviours that challenge and other aspects of the individual's life and environment, while collaborating with everyone associated with that individual.

We take a person-centred approach, where we are able to identify which areas of support will be most beneficial to each individual and will work closely with them to ensure that their goals and choices are at the heart of everything we do.

Marcus and Marcus are dedicated to working with the PBS framework. In addition to our management team, our support staff are guided and supported by a team of qualified PBS practice leads. The support staff are guided in developing a good understanding of the needs and preferences of the persons they support, as well as in the implementation of their support plans.

We are committed to reducing restrictive practices at Marcus and Marcus. To improve a person's quality of life, we focused on proactive preventative behavioural support, identifying the person's individual needs, characteristics, and preferences.
