Michael has worked for Disability Huntingdonshire for around 8 years. He has a depth of experience in giving a broad range of welfare advice, and is particularly knowledgeable in giving information and advice on benefits available to people with disabilities. He is also willing to make appeals against negative or adverse decisions, if we feel that there is merit in doing so. He has been a key player in establishing the excellent reputation that we have in the Huntingdonshire district.


Tracey Woodhouse: Caseworker

Tracey

 

Our newest caseworker comes to us from the telecoms industry where she organised parts of the network for a variety of different companies. Her son has Cerebral Palsy and so she is familiar with the benefits system for children and all added difficulties of trying to provide a child with disabilities the best possible opportunities and support. She is looking forward to working with other families also facing these challenges.

Jackie provides admin support to the Disability Huntingdonshire team and is also the first point of contact for anyone wishing to get in touch with the organisation. She has a particular interest in the welfare of older people. She is also interested in the literacy development of adults, in particular those with additional learning needs, and in the past has worked as an adult literacy teacher. Jackie enjoys being part of the DISH team and is committed to the work that the organisation carries out.
