by CEO Paul Townsley

DISC CEO Paul Townsley speaks about his thoughts following a visit to The Greens, in Sheffield. The recovery focused accommodation is situated in award winning buildings in the city.

Paul spoke with many of the residents, as well as DISC workers. What became apparent, he said, was that many residents felt they were in safe, secure place and were valued by staff.

The Greens has some 15 en-suite rooms and six additional flats for residents who can stay several months at a time. The project offers practical and therapeutic support while preparing residents to move on and perhaps re-establish themselves in the community and with family.

Paul says: “At DISC, what we’re really about is giving people hope…

“Our staff and managers and volunteers help people help themselves. We offer really practical and structured support to people when they need it.”
