Description

Dear Colleague

Let's celebrate!

Over the past year, barely a day has gone by without headlines about the UK's demographic time bomb, critical service and financial pressures, and the imperative to invest in prevention across health and social care systems.

The challenges in Hertfordshire are as pressing as elsewhere, but a willingness to innovate, challenge the status quo, and work together has helped to establish excellent practice that others wish to emulate.

10 years ago, one such innovation was the establishment of Hertfordshire Independent Living Service (incorporated as Hertfordshire Community Meals). In 2007, at a time of increasing budgetary pressures, it was a courageous decision to establish the first ever meals on wheels social enterprise; 10 years on, HILS is the largest and most successful not-for-profit meals on wheels service in the country, serving many thousands of people, providing a wide range of independent living services, and evidencing the real value of prevention, 365 days a year.

On 22nd September we are holding a very special 10th Anniversary event to celebrate what HILS has achieved, share our learning, and to thank the many inspirational people who have supported our work and shared our values.

We would be delighted and honoured if you would join us for a tea and cake celebration in the Cobbold Barn at Knebworth House Barns, from 2.00 to 4.00pm.

Thank you for your part in helping HILS change the lives of tens of thousands of older, disabled, and vulnerable people for the better. We hope you can join us for our special celebratory event.

With warmest good wishes.

Sarah Wren
Chief Executive, HILS
