About Hft - support services for adults with learning disabilities

About Hft

Everyone has a right to the best life possible and that includes people with learning disabilities. But people with learning disabilities face obstacles that are hard to imagine – their challenges can be complex and lifelong. Even so, with the right care, support and encouragement, we believe everyone with a learning disability can find more enjoyment, comfort and satisfaction in their lives.

That’s why everything we do is centred on the people we support. Our Fusion Model of Support ensures that we focus on the specific needs of each individual, being creative about the kind of personal care and support we offer. We work hard to understand their changing needs and provide services and support that make a real difference to their lives.

As one of the largest and longest-established charities supporting people with learning disabilities, we are able to invest our knowledge in our staff. We help them to develop the specialist skills and expertise needed to provide the kind of support we believe in. And we try to make sure they always have the time it takes to build trusted, caring relationships with the people and families they support.

Our services range from residential care and day opportunities to supported living/domiciliary care at home – from a few hours a week to 24 hours a day. We provide support that means people with learning disabilities can experience life to the full – from enjoyment, satisfaction and improved health to finding meaningful relationships or paid employment. Our commitment goes beyond being just a high quality support provider.

You can help people with learning disabilities live the life they choose.
