Hft - Personalised Technology Solutions

Hft is a national charity supporting adults with learning disabilities across England and Wales. Since 2004 Hft has had a national team dedicated to delivering assistive technology assessment, training and, more recently, consultancy services to help improve people's quality of life outcomes, whilst maximising resources. We call it personalised technology, because the solutions and approaches are personalised to individuals.

Hft is a national charity supporting adults with learning disabilities in a variety of settings across England and Wales. Hft has a national team dedicated to the use of assisitve technology to improve people's quality of life outcomes, whilst also maximising resources. We call it personalised technology, because the solutions and approaches are personalised to individuals.

Hft has been using technology with the people we support for a number of years to address issues such as choice, control, privacy, dignity, communication, independence and safety and ultimately improve quality of life outcomes for individuals. In turn, we have also used technology to support our staff to remain safe and be reassured at work as well as reducing staff, where appropriate, and ensuring staff can provide more meaningful support to individuals.

We have more recently began offering our services externally and have been working with several other social care providers and local authorities to provide technology assessments consultancy and training. Although our expertise is in learning disabilities, the solutions and strategies we use can be applied to many other groups.
