#DISC2020

Going the extra mile for our service users

#DISC2020 is our commitment to support 2,020 people into employment, training and volunteering by the end of the year 2020. We know that our service users not only have the potential to improve their financial situation with employment training or volunteering, but also it can improve their mental and physical health. It drives a feeling of wellbeing and improves self- worth.

Our #DISC2020 Vision

We wish to embed cross-unit working within DISC, ensuring all units work towards a common theme of supporting people into employment, training or volunteering

We know that our service users not only have the potential to improve their financial situation, with employment training or volunteering, but also it can improve their mental and physical health. It drives a feeling of well being and improves self- worth.

WOW Clubs

We intend to extend our successful WOW Club model across the North.  Watch our videos  to learn more about WOW Clubs from staff and service users.

The Proposal

Each DISC service unit will continue with their typical daily duties, with #DISC2020 raising the importance of employment/training/volunteering and its benefits for service users and staff.  Units will report on a regular basis the number of service users they have supported – with each unit contributing towards the overall objective of 2020 by the end of year 2020.

Moving forward the detail capture and the success for #DISC2020 can be utilised in bids and applications for funding.

How will it happen?

With the support and drive of DISC’s senior management team,  #DISC2020 will have:

  • Guidance to provide a framework for recording progression into employment/ training/ volunteering
  • Training delivered to Champions who will lead out the vision in each area
  • World of Work (WOW) Clubs will be rolled out in all areas. WOW clubs are facilitated by staff to support service users on their journey into employment/training/volunteering, pulling together units within DISC, via cross referrals and other more localised provision – driving cross unit working
