Original research commissioned or undertaken by Hft to help create informed debate around current issues in the learning disabilities or the social care sector.


Sector Pulse Check

As part of our ongoing It Doesn’t Add Up campaign, Hft is working with independent economics and business consultancy Cebr to produce our annual Sector Pulse Check. Our Sector Pulse Checks are the first of their kind to focus primarily on learning disability providers.

It follows on from Hft and Cebr’s first report, It Doesn’t Add Up: The Financial Crisis Crippling The Social Care Sector, published in December 2016, which examined the impact of financial pressures on the viability of the adult social care sector.

Moving forward, the Sector Pulse Check report, which is based on survey analysis from social care providers, will be produced as an annual snapshot for policymakers and stakeholders of the perceived financial health of the social care sector over the past year, with the intention of influencing long-lasting change.
