Welcome to Hft

Hft is a national charity, providing local support services for people with learning disabilities throughout England. We support people to live life the way they choose - whether providing support for just a couple of hours a week, or 24 hours a day.

Supporting people

We support people with learning disabilities and family carers across England. Our services include Supported Living, Residential Care and Short Break services.

We empower people to make their own choices, including finding a job, building friendships and relationships and taking part in activities.

Our work

We’re committed to working in partnership with the people we support, their families and carers, health professionals, and other providers to develop effective, highly personalised services to suit individual needs.
