Tracy Hyland – Chief Executive Officer
I joined Disability Huntingdonshire in March 2019 as the CEO. My professional background has primarily been in the charity sector and I have worked locally, regionally and at a national level. I love the ethos and the values of DISH and I am so proud to lead a team of amazing caseworkers who are totally committed to helping people of all ages with disabilities navigate this incredibly complex and punitive world of disability benefits. I am also grateful to be supported by my Trustee Board who are also committed to ensuring DISH remains for many years. If you have any ideas about how you can support us, please get in touch. Personally, I am the sibling of a person with profound and multiple disabilities and my mum is still a full-time carer going into her 83rd year! It’s in the DNA. DISH is committed to helping you.
Nikki David – Caseworker
I started working for DISH in January 2019. I have 5 children. My youngest has Down’s syndrome and I had to go to tribunal for him so as a parent I understand the fight that goes on for people. I also have 2 children with additional needs as well as my eldest with ongoing health problems. I absolutely love my job and I love being able to help other people.
Tracey Woodhouse – Caseworker
Tracey has been with DISH for a long time now and is very passionate about helping others. Previously she worked in the telecoms industry but is now very happy in this role and would not go back. Her son has Cerebral Palsy and so she is familiar with the benefits system for children and all the added difficulties of trying to provide a child with disabilities the best possible opportunities and support.
Michael O’Fee – Client Welfare Adviser
Michael has worked for Disability Huntingdonshire for around 12 years. He has an absolute wealth 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 also supports appeals against negative or adverse decisions. He has been a key player in establishing the excellent reputation that we have in the Huntingdonshire district.
Ella Francis – Business Administration Apprentice
My Mum has spinal muscular atrophy and she is a wheelchair user, so I am familiar with the PIP/benefits system. Therefore I know about the fight it takes in order for you to receive what you rightfully deserve and need to maintain a good quality of life! DISH is here to be that invaluable support and is the sort of place I will enjoy being a part of. Knowing that I am making a difference in people’s lives, I am really excited to be starting my first steps on the career ladder here as an apprentice.
