Supported living

Many people take choosing where to live and who to live with for granted, yet it’s a fundamental part of feeling in control of your life.

At Hft, we support people with learning disabilities to live however and wherever they choose, often helping them move from residential care or family homes into their own place or a house shared with friends.

Supported living

Once you’ve found the right place to live, we can support you in your house in a way that suits you, whether that’s round the clock or dropping in to help with the bills or shopping.

Finding a home
We’ll support you in finding accommodation with local housing associations and private landlords that’s already suited to your needs, or can easily be adapted to meet them.

Moving into your own home for the first time? We’ll help to make sure you understand the details of your tenancy agreements and paying rent. We can also support you to move, and to work out what support you'll need to live in your own home.

Personalised assistive technology
Being able to do things yourself is important, putting you in control of your life and helping you be an active member of your community.

We will work closely with you - to identify any areas where personalised technology may help you to live more independently, safely and easily.

Personalised technology can take many forms, whether it’s in a gadget that reminds you to close the fridge door, or a mobile phone application to show you where to catch the bus without a member of staff.

Staffing
Finding the right staff support for you is important. It’s not just about finding someone that does a good job, but finding someone who shares the same interests and enjoys the same things you do.

That’s why at Hft we take time to make sure that we find the staff to suit you.

Personal care
We’re registered as a domiciliary care provider, meaning we provide personal care.

“Our son has recently moved away from home into supported living with Hft.  Hft staff have been helpful and friendly at all times.  They have got to know our son well and are helping him to become more independent and make his own choices about how he spends his time. We are especially pleased with the way they have worked with us and continue to keep us involved.”

Standards
We take the standard of care and support we offer very seriously.  All our supported living accommodation is run to meet the standards set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who regulate care provision in England.
