Our friendly, dedicated and professional team – going the extra smile for you.

From the healthcare and support professionals to the housing officers and cleaners; from the maintenance people to the main board members, Hill Homes’ tenants have a vast pool of experience and expertise working for them every hour of every day. Equally important, though, is the sheer enthusiasm we all share for looking after everyone in our lively Hill Homes community.

She joined Hill Homes temporarily 15 years ago providing Finance support but, thanks to her impressive qualifications (CIMA, BA(Hons) Accounting & Law, MSc Charity Finance) and extensive business experience covering IT, HR, communications, administration and outsourcing as well as finance, she has been here ever since.

As CEO, Cath has overall responsibility for housing and care services – her goal being to ensure everyone living at Hill Homes feels part of a vibrant community. As if all that were not enough, Cath is also a certified nutrition coach and the author of  The Good Investment Guide for the Voluntary Sector.

Trish Payne
Housing Support Officer

Joining Hill Homes in September 2016 as Care Office Administrator was Patricia’s introduction to the care sector after 17 years in the corporate sector ended in redundancy. She was initially attracted to the role by its relevance to her wealth of office admin experience together with the satisfaction of working closely with different people and making a valuable contribution to their lives. A proud member of the team, Patricia spent the next few years working closely with tenants, staff and volunteers alike and then, when the role of Housing Support Officer became available, she saw it as an opportunity to engage more closely with tenants and their families on a more personal basis. She applied and was successful – and to this day still finds her work as rewarding as ever and feels that she still learns something new every day.
