Our Partners

We work with a number of partners to support our clients.

Our partners are a variety of community, public, and private sector organisations, all working towards the same goal: to improve the lives of older and disabled people.

We’re proud of what we achieve together. If you think that your organisation would like to partner with HILS on a project, to raise awareness, or to fundraise, please get in touch by emailing comms@hils-uk.org or check out our Corporate Sponsorship page
