hft are a national charity, founded in 1962. We pioneered the idea that adults with learning disabilities have the right to choices about how they live and how they are supported, to enable them to lead the best life possible. We continue to explore ways to deliver this right for people, every day.
Today around 1.5 million adults in the UK have a learning disability. It may mean a person finds it hard to understand new or complex information, or that learning new skills takes them longer. Learning disabilities can make everyday life more challenging, but no-one should struggle to cope. With your support, hft can help people live with as much independence and choice as possible.
