Message from SIL's Chairperson, Angela Pendleton
My interest with SIL was initially sparked by attending the SIL AGM at Saxon Hall as Mayor of Leominster in 2016. Throughout that afternoon I felt privileged just to listen, observe and laugh and experienced the camaraderie that was omnipresent on the day.
I have been a Town Councillor for 7 years and Chair and Parish Councillor of Birley and Upper Hill for 10 years.
I have had a varied career offering money advice, Tribunal Representation and became an area Trainer within the Citizen’s Advice and a qualified Personnel Professional serving time at Boots.
The year 2002 saw a change in career. I attended Pershore College and qualified in Horticulture, Garden Design and management.
Now at Grange Court, as its Manager, there are many challenges but rewarding times in developing the business.
Together with my fellow trustees, CEO and staff at SIL, I will support, improve and drive the business forward remembering always that our customers come first, this bench marks all that we do under the banner of Service Provider.
SIL was founded by a handful of disabled people in 1996 and it continues to be led by disabled people today, with the majority of the Board of Trustees either being a service user or a family carer, and it is this user-led approach that drives the organisation and influences the decisions that are made.
SIL’s dedicated staff and trustees are committed to finding the best way to support our service users and we strive to overcome the challenges which face all organisations currently working within social care.
I hope that you find the information within these pages informative, but naturally should you have any questions about our services, or would like to talk to someone about how SIL may be able to support you or a loved one, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
