News Release No 62/22

6th January 2022

Services for Independent Living (SIL) is a multi-award-winning Herefordshire based charity which supports disabled and older people to gain and maintain independence and live the lives they want in their own homes and communities. SIL works across Herefordshire supporting approximately 300 people and employing around 130 staff.

We are currently looking for additional trustees to join our Board and this is an exciting opportunity to play a major part in shaping the future direction of the organisation.

Our trustees work with our managers to develop future plans and steer the organisation. It’s a rewarding and enjoyable role that can make a real difference to the lives of the people we support, while supporting trustees to learn new skills.  

SIL’s CEO, Euan McPherson said: “We are looking for people with good interpersonal skills and who enjoy team working. In particular, we are seeking people with lived experience of disability and/or financial or financial accounting knowledge. At least half the members of our Board have experience of disability.

“You do not need to have been a trustee before as support is available from our existing experienced trustees, who meet monthly. SIL is a welcoming and accessible organisation and we welcome applications from all ages and backgrounds”.

Angela Higham, SIL’s Chair, added: “SIL is a wonderful organisation to be part of, its success is largely due to the joint working between our trustees and the highly effective Senior Management Team. We are looking for people that can join us as we look forward to an exciting period of growth and development.”
