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.
Nicola Knight – 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.
Felicity Bucknall-Hart – Mental Health Benefits Caseworker
Felicity joined the team in 2021 and has had both personal and professional experience in both Mental Health and Learning and Physical disabilities. Felicity has over 12 years’ experience working in the Health and Social care sector. Felicity has a passion to support people in the local community to access the right support during challenging times in their life and understands the importance of having support during these times. Felicity is a Mental Health Advocate within the social media community and works to raise awareness of support services available to the community in both child and adult mental health.
