On February 1st, Touchstone brought together our Safe Space and Well-Bean Crisis Cafes across West Yorkshire with one new name and updated look: Here For You, an out-of-hours service, offering face-to-face support for any of us who are feeling down or struggling to cope with our thoughts.

Advert for Here For You including new logo, which is the outline of tree branches, topped by hearts, with the words 'Here For You - Out of Hours Support in A Safe Space' next to it.Since first opening for 2 nights a week from Lincoln Green Community Centre in 2016, the Well-Bean Crisis Café service has grown rapidly to support the growing number of people, who are seeking support in the evening for thoughts of depression, loneliness, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide.

Touchstone now offers this vital support 7 nights a week, 365 days a year across Leeds, Kirklees, and Wakefield, with partners Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service and GASPED in Wakefield. Since starting, the service has supported over 2000 people to access free, confidential, and safe, same night support when they need it most.

In 2023 alone, the teams across these three areas provided over 4000 hours of support to people, who otherwise would struggle alone, turn to A&E, or may even attempt suicide and require police support.

Well-lit, comfy Here for You room with sofas.

The Here For You service is continuing to offer this support every evening from 6pm until midnight. We are here to challenge the stigma around talking about our feelings, or having thoughts of self-harm and suicide, by offering a safe, inclusive space, where anybody can come and be their authentic self.

The new service name and look were created with input from visitors, who have used these spaces themselves, to help reach people who also might need support.

If you, or somebody you know is struggling, they don’t have to do it alone. Reach Out. Share. Speak to Here For You.
