Meet the Team


Kate Williams

Before joining Independence at Home three years ago I worked for over 35 years at senior manager and director level in the NHS and for a UK wide charity that supports expectant and new parents. I worked with professionals to provide a wide range of services and support that met individual needs and reached those at greatest disadvantage. Times are very hard for people with a disability or long term illness. I am proud to work for Independence at Home which makes a positive difference to the lives of over 1,000 individuals each year enabling them to keep on doing the everyday things that we all take for granted.

Chief Executive

Karen Stovold

I have been with IAH as its Chief Finance Officer since 2009. This followed a career break after working as a compliance manager within a global investment bank. I really enjoy the diversity of tasks I need to tackle in any given week at IAH, and the opportunity to use my skills within the third sector.

Chief Finance Officer

Liz Somerville

Twenty eight years with the NHS dealing with patients and relatives, and direct family experience of the effects of physical and mental disability lead me to this role, which I love. I can see that our grants help with reablement, dignity and comfort in our clients’ daily lives.

Applications Officer

Judy Kelner

When I first began working for IAH 30 years ago I only worked for 4 hours a week when my children were young. Over the years my hours and role have expanded, and I am now the Grants & Database Manager working over 20 hours a week. Sending out grants to our clients every week and reading all the cases makes me realise what a worthwhile service we offer to long-term ill and disabled people to enable them to remain in their own homes. I feel very privileged to work for IAH helping so many people live a more comfortable life.

Grants and Database Manager

Peter Kelner

Having worked in IT for commercial Computer and Communication companies for most of my career it is particularly pleasing to put my experience to use with a charity whose aim is to make life more bearable for those with limiting disabilities. IAH is exceptional in that all donations are used solely for grants and these go directly for the benefit of clients. I am happy to be able to provide system support at a time of rapid technological change which will enable IAH to maintain its edge.

Rina Rawal

Recently, my father has faced a variety of health issues and with key adaptations in the home he has been able to retain his independence. This personal experience made me realise how vital Independence at Home’s work is for individuals, their families and carers. I’m delighted to be joining the team and hope to bring my fundraising knowledge, skills and experience to help make a lasting contribution.
