Mission Statement

Hft is a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities, everything we do focuses on helping the people we support live the best life possible

Description

Hft is a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities and their families, our London division is based in Barnet where we support around 40 people. Everything we do focuses on helping the people we support live the best life possible


We are committed to supporting people with learning disabilities to live the life they choose.

We support people by:

* Working in partnership with them and those that know them well to create flexible services that meet their needs, whether they need a lot of support, or just occasionally
* Where possible, involving them in deciding who supports them so they have the opportunity to do things they like, whether that’s meeting new friends, developing hobbies, working or volunteering
* Involving them in deciding how we run Hft, both locally and nationally
* Supporting them to have the home life they want, whether that’s in a residential home, at home with their family, or in their own home
* Helping them be independent by looking at their needs and using the right technology to meet those needs, as well as to develop the skills and confidence to do things themselves where they can
* Providing free support and information to families and carers of all people with learning disabilities, whether or not they’re supported by Hft.
