DISC has delivered effective, service user focused, community and criminal justice substance misuse services, winning awards and recognition for the services we deliver (i.e. Tackling Drugs, Changing Lives from the Home Office 2009).
We have established effective working relationships with criminal justice partnerships throughout our geographical locations. Through our work within DIP, IOM, PPO, AIC and young offender NEET programmes we have established excellent communication networks to ensure we provide end-to-end provision from prison and the community, aligned to the offender management model and linking together a range of funding streams to offer effective support that make life changing impact on individuals’ lives.
The range of Criminal Justice interventions we currently deliver include;
- Drug Intervention Programme (DIP)
- Intensive Alternative to Custody (IAC)
- Integrated Offender Management (IOM)
- Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR)
- Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR)
- Outreach & Engagement
- Family Intervention Programme
- Anti Social & Youth Justice
- Housing Support for Offenders
In April 2009 there were 11623 young people held in custody. The Prison Reform trust believes that over thirds of those held are likely to re-offend within two years.
DISC has a number of projects that can help young offenders to reintegrate with society, offering training, education, peer mentoring and housing services.
