Safe Haven, our new 24/7 service

Safe Haven is an exciting new development for Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and Touchstone as the first of our crisis services to be open 24 / 7. Unlike LSLCS’ other services (which are all self-referral), Safe Haven will be accessed via Leeds NHS Crisis Resolution and Intensive Support Service, and the Older People’s Support and Intensive Home Treatment Team (for those aged over 65).

Leeds Safe Haven will be open 24/7 to provide an alternative to hospital admission for people in acute mental health crisis. The service will have space for 6 guests (who may stay for up to one week) and 4 day visitors (who will come only in the day time, again for up to 7 days). The service will be staffed by a manager and deputy manager, a team of approximately 18 crisis support workers, and an inclusion worker (with a focus on outreach to disadvantaged groups).

For an informal discussion about the roles, please contact Barry Cooper, Mobilisation Manager; or call 0113 260 9328



The following roles will be advertised in line with the new service:
