This service helps people with a personal budget in Kirklees to find and arrange the kind of support services they want. All our peer brokers are people with direct experience of living with mental health difficulties (including dementia), and of using mental health services. They are trained and supported to help you work out what kind of support you want, to live the kind of life you want.

We provide personalised support to people with individual budgets who opt for Touchstone to provide them with 1-1 specialised mental health support. Touchstone have been supporting people who have their own personal budgets, since 2010.

The Well-Bean Hope In a Crisis Café supports anyone in a crisis – it provides a safe place for people in crisis to go and to prevent avoidable attendances at A&E. The Well-bean cafe has been set up by Touchstone and the Basement Recovery Project, a Huddersfield social enterprise. It is funded by NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group.
