Hertfordshire Independent Living Service
HILS provides a range of services to help older and vulnerable people stay happy, healthy, and independent.
We are a charitable Social Enterprise. This means that we trade to do good and support people and we reinvest any surplus into helping our clients. We have a contract from Hertfordshire County Council to deliver meals on wheels on its behalf, and receive some money from other organisations. We always try to do more every year so that we remain good value for Hertfordshire's taxpayers.
We believe in paying people a fair wage and all of our staff are paid at least the Living Wage Foundation's Living Wage. We only use paid staff to deliver our meals, and volunteers provide vital support to deliver our other services.
We also believe in helping people back into work. A number of our staff have found it difficult to work for a wide range of reasons and we have helped them to thrive in the workplace with training and support.
