Disability Huntingdonshire could not function without the support of people through volunteering and providing services. Service providers help us with promotion, IT and make our charity more visible, efficient and effective.
They are part of our DISH family.
Adam Lester – Integrity Team Ltd
Adam Lester is the Managing Director of Integrity Team Limited, a small IT Solutions firm based in Peterborough specialising in charitable organisations and the not-for-profit sector. Their main focus is to provide sound and practical advice towards improving IT services, whilst also leveraging some of the special subsidies offered by software and service providers for non-profit organisations. Integrity Team is centred upon Christian ethics, so openness, honesty and trust are all of paramount importance to their culture and way of working.
Adam has recently transformed the Disability Huntingdonshire IT environment, plus he has migrated services from one provider to another in order to achieve some immediate cost savings.

Hilary Bayles has been volunteering for Disability Huntingdonshire for approximately 10 years.
“I have lupus and dyslexia which makes life pretty challenging. I personally know how it feels to have to go through the rigmarole of the benefits system. I have also studied for a social policy degree with the Open University which is useful for my volunteering role.
When I started with DISH, I achieved my Customer Service NVQ. I have helped on many fundraising events, and my brother ran the London Marathon for DISH in 2015. I also received the unsung hero award in 2015.”
Angela Haylock is the owner of The Safeguarding Toolbox and has worked in various agencies within the voluntary sector for over 26 years. She has been delivering Safeguarding training, mainly to the voluntary sector, since 2008.

Angela is a qualified trainer with a Certificate of Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS) and has acquired her Associate Teacher Learning and Skills (ATLS) professional status. She also has a Certificate in Personnel Practice from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Directors.
Will Shotton – PR & Marketing Volunteer
Hi! My name is Will. In 2018 I developed PTSD from an incident at University. I faced numerous challenges just to get support, including being on a waiting list for 15 months to get counselling treatment. Mental health can be all-consuming and it’s not right to go through it alone and suffer.
The wonderful team at DISH want to support you.
