The Kent Challenging Behaviour Network (KCBN) is a not for profit organisation. Its purpose is to improve the quality of services for people with intellectual disabilities who can present challenging behaviour and live in Kent.  The network aims to do this by promoting and sharing best practice.

The KCBN brings together professionals in learning disabilities and challenging behaviour through regular training, workshops and conferences, and by providing an opportunity to network through regular meetings and project work.
