We are delighted to announce that The Cambridge Centre has merged with DISC, a larger charity working with vulnerable groups of people in the North of England, on the 1st February 2016.
Existing contracts that The Cambridge Centre delivers will transfer to DISC along with the staff teams.
We anticipate that this merger will increase services locally and look forward to developing new and exciting initiatives.

Nikki Orrell, of the Cambridge Centre:
“This merger is good news for our service users. We have made sure that service users will not be affected as we move forward. All the services we run will carry on as normal.” Ms Orrell said services would continue to be run at the Women’s Community Project on Northway in Scarborough.
And she said: “We are delighted to take a really good partnership into a more strategic alliance that allows us to deliver greater social value in North Yorkshire and use the experience and skills of The Cambridge Centre to develop our housing, specialist women’s and offender services.”
Paul Townsley, Chief Executive of DISC - Developing Initiatives Supporting Communities:
"The merger would benefit existing service users and create the potential to help more people. He said: “To fully achieve the strategic ambitions of both organisations and whilst in a strong position, it was felt a good time to merge.”
