Hft | Get involved | Campaigns


Hft is committed to providing the best possible outcomes for the people we support, and the best working experiences for our staff. The issues that matter to them matter to us.

This means that we often engage in campaigns and advocacy. Everything that we do aims to promote innovation and the sustainability of the social care sector, as well as improving the rights of and opportunities for people with a learning disability, regardless of whether or not they are supported by Hft. We use the same evidence-based, positive approach that is the hallmark of our Fusion Model of Support to promote creative and innovative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges being faced by the social care sector.

  • A Sector Deal for the learning disability sector

    Investment in personalised assistive technology has the potential to transform the way care is delivered in the learning disability sector.
  • Walk in our shoes

    The people we support and Hft are calling on politicians to spend time with people with a learning disability, hear what life is like for them, and walk in our shoes.
  • It doesn't add up

    "The Government must properly fund the National Living Wage before vulnerable people with learning disabilities are left without vital specialist support."
  • A Minister of State for Social Care

    "We believe that government should reinstate the Social Care portfolio to that of a Minister of State." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
