How Hft can support you with PT solutions


Hft specialises in using creative solutions to increase independence, safety, privacy, choice and control for people with learning disabilities and complex needs.

We have a dedicated team of Personalised Technology experts who implement Personalised Technology (also known as assistive technology) solutions to improve quality of life outcomes for people with disabilities, while increasing efficiencies.

Our success is directly linked to our investment in specialist technology solutions and our extensive knowledge of the most up to date options, which are personalised to individuals – hence the term ‘personalised technology’, or PT for short.

We have a personalised needs assessment process, which includes:

  • Easy to use and safe appliances, systems, and equipment for promotion and maintenance of independence, wellbeing, choice and control;
  • Specialist solutions for people with autism, taking into account sensory and other needs;
  • Ongoing responses to the changing needs of individuals;
  • PT now and in the future (future-proofing buildings for technology installations).
