DiSC CIC was selected as a semi-finalist in the national Ageing Well Challenge Prize.

Our Circles of Care project was shortlisted from an initial group of hundreds of projects.

The Challenge, run by Nesta, the UK's innovation foundation, and funded by the Cabinet Office aims to identify new innovations that can reduce the isolation and/or increase the mobility of vulnerable older people by providing new opportunities for communities to come together to give time, skills and resources.
