HFT enables people with learning disabilities to develop their potential, to make informed choices and to take responsibility.
HFT provides a national network of user focused services including; supported
living, registered residential care, day opportunities, specialist services for
those with specific syndromes or complex support needs, supported employment,
carer support services, transition workshops, advocacy, short breaks (respite
care), research and ICT (information communications technology) training.
People we support are encouraged (through person centred planning) to make choices and develop self-esteem. We operate a key worker system to help us do this. We have a quality assurance system, which includes commissioning regular external evaluation of our services, to ensure our working practices are monitored to help us improve and meet our targets.
HFT has clear policies and guidelines on care, personnel, finance, health and safety and local procedures.
We endorse the key principles of the Valuing People White Paper and work within the Care Standards Act requirements, continually striving to improve services.
Fees for our services are individually negotiated, based on the cost of individual requirements, to meet our basic services. HFT also actively raises charitable funds which are used to significantly improve the quality of life for service users in many ways. We work in partnership with an extensive range of other organisations and actively welcome the opportunity for further partnerships.
HFT was founded in 1962 by parents of people with learning disabilities and is a company limited by guarantee under Registration No. 734984. It is also a Registered Charity No: 313069.
