Hertfordshire Independent Living Service (HILS)


Hertfordshire Independent Living Service (HILS) is a charitable, not-for-profit, social enterprise that delivers meals on wheels and caring support to disabled, elderly, or vulnerable adults throughout Hertfordshire.

The meals service runs 365 days a year, offering main meals and desserts, teas, and breakfast meals. All meals are delivered to individuals in their homes between 11.30am and 2.00pm, and to lunch clubs between 11.30am and 1.30pm 7 days a week.

Along with the meal, our Community Team Members also provide welfare checks which provide reassurance to families and carers as well as our clients. We also undertake a host of projects in partnership with other organisations designed to keep our clients safe and well.

Please visit our website for details on how our other services may have been affected.
