Touchstone’s BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) Dementia Service provides specialist support to people living with memory problems or a diagnosis of dementia and their carers from ethnic minorities. Our aim is to raise awareness of dementia within BME communities by breaking down the barriers that exists about dementia and bring it out into the open so that people can access the support they need while meeting their language, cultural and religious needs.

Live Well Leeds is a Leeds City wide service, based in the community to provide support for people with mild to moderate support needs to manage and/or recover from their mental health, diagnosed or not.

Community Wellbeing Connector roles are help bridge gaps between people and support in their communities in the HATCH area of Leeds (Chapeltown, Harehills, Burmantofts and Richmond Hill). They work with people to promote mental health and wellbeing, increase their independence and support their recovery. They support people with ongoing and complex Severe Mental Illness (SMI’s), supporting people to consider and navigate the different types of community support available to them. They also offer practical support, i.e. accompanying people to activities/assessments if needed.
