Our aim is to empower you to better support those who you work with in order to reduce behaviours that challenge over time. We design bespoke packages of learning and support to meet your needs and get you to where you want to be.
CALM is and always has been committed to restraint reduction. This is one of our core values and we will always continue to work in collaboration with those organisations who share this commitment.
We don’t parachute in and out as the “external expert”. We seek to develop long-lasting relationships with our user organisations, and our support continues way after the training has ended. We pride ourselves on the fact that for anyone who has ever participated in a CALM course, we are always only a phone call away!
Where restrictive interventions are absolutely necessary, the CALM system ensures these are as non-aversive as possible, respect the dignity of the individual, and are highly regulated and quality assured. CALM only trains in these techniques when we are confident they will be delivered in a compassionate context with relationships at its heart. All of CALM’s programmes are evidence-based and reflect the consistent conclusions from the research.

CALM offers a range of consultancy options for all user organisations no matter your stage of implementation. We are also happy to provide consultancy services to non-CALM using organisations.
One of the distinguishing features of CALM’s relationship with you is our commitment to ongoing support.
We can provide guidance in relation to areas of practice around the implementation of CALM, the support of situations posing particular challenges, policy development in particular areas, the lawfulness of practice, risk assessment, support planning, and beyond.
