Our Team

Roy Isworth – Chair of Trustees

Consultant Urological Surgeon. I qualified at Westminster Hospital Medical School in 1975. FRCS England 1979. I worked as a Consultant Surgeon at Benenden Hospital from 1984-2004. I retired from full time practice at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich in 2012. I now work part time in Ashford. 

Since 2012 I have served as Chairman of Tenterden Residents Association, Chairman Tenterden Cricket Club, Tenterden Town Councillor and St Michael’s School Governor. I am currently a Trustee of The Vicar of Tenterden’s Trust and The Friends of St Mildred’s Church.


I have lived in Tenterden with my wife Emma since 1991. We have twin daughters who both work in London. I took over as Chairman of Trustees of Tenterden Social Hub (previously Tenterden & District Day Centre), in July 2016. My recreational interests include playing in a Tennis League, Golf and The London Handel Society.


Lindsay Franklin – CEO 

I am the current Chief Executive Officer of Tenterden Social Hub, an innovative community based facility supporting the elderly and those suffering with a physical or learning disability. With many years of experience in a corporate and promotional and advertising agency environment, my latter professional life has revolved around health and care in both charitable trusts and social enterprises, including Benenden Hospital and Royal British Legion Industries.

My personal mission is to work with our lovely team and supportive stakeholders to raise awareness of what help is available to those who need it most. We are all passionate about delivering the best possible support to the individuals who need it and thus make a real difference to their lives within our community.


I have travelled widely and have a particular passion for the outdoors life, particularly gardening and I am happiest spending time with friends and family and walking my large dog!
