Touchstone has been awarded NHS funding to run a Crisis Café in the early evening and night.
The aim of the Cafe is to divert people who would be better supported elsewhere, away from Accident and Emergency (A&E) and other crisis services in Leeds & Kirklees.
The service will be delivered in partnership with Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service (LSLCS) in Leeds, including the Basement Project in Huddersfield and Dewsbury.
The Crisis Café provides a non-clinical setting to support up to 12 individuals at a time to access support.
They are seeking experienced staff to work in the Well Bean Crisis Café, which supports people in crisis as an alternative to A&E.
The post holder will support people in acute distress, including one to one support, support planning and liaison with local services.
The service has initially been currently operating as a pilot scheme in Huddersfield.
Due to the success it will now continue with the new allocation of funding and is be immobilised in Dewsbury.
Closing date: 28 April 2019
Interviews will be held on: 27 May (in Huddersfield)
