Delivered by
Tammy Easton Carer Support Worker, VOCAL.
Tammy came to VOCAL just over a year ago and is funded by the Start in the Right Direction Fund which ensures carers and people they care for are supported in getting the best out of Self Directed Support. Tammy has worked with many carers to ensure they get what they are entitled to and support to help them use their payments.
