The majority of Hft’s funding comes from local authorities who pay us fees to provide basic support to the learning disabled people whose care they are responsible for. But those fees only cover support for individuals. This means we don’t have extra funding available to us to invest in additional specialist services or to maintain our national projects.
That’s where our donors and supporters come in. Over many years, we have worked in partnership with our donors to ensure that learning disabled adults have been able to live the best lives possible. It’s their generosity that has allowed us to expand beyond the care of individuals, providing services and projects that make a huge difference to the lives of the people we support.
Being a major supporter is not always about giving financially. Our supporters often lend their expertise to our organisation which is equally valuable to us. We work with legal professionals, leaders in industry and medical practitioners to provide advocacy or expertise for the people we support and their families. Gaining access to the right information, or guidance via our Family Carers Support Service for example, can make a huge difference to the personal circumstances of the people we support and their families, leading to better outcomes.
