Sarah is Hft’s Innovation Manager and part of its Personalised Technology team. Personalised Technology is how Hft refers to assistive technology, since their approach is centred around the person. Sarah’s role involves raising Hft’s profile around assistive technology and how it can enhance the lives of people with learning disabilities, as well as managing projects trialling new technologies. Sarah also works on developing partnerships and opportunities to extend Hft’s work around assistive technology solutions and how these can be applicable to other audiences. More recently Sarah has led the development of a new strategy for assistive technology services both within Hft and externally, offering assessments, consultancy and training, to ensure the long-term sustainability of the team.
