As a key partner in this service, Touchstone will deliver support for women with mental health needs and deliver tailored wellbeing support for BME communities.

This role will be part of the Women’s Criminal Justice Team, delivering an inclusive and supportive programme driven to achieve the best for local communities.  The particular focus of this role will be to support women through the mental health pathway.  You will work closely with external mental health organisations, across West Yorkshire, to extend access to mental health services, to encourage women to access existing resources, as well as working to build new opportunities. You will support women to build upon their strengths and work through any barriers that are preventing them from progressing and achieving their potential.
