Health and wellbeing charity Touchstone is forging an alliance with community development organisation Sharing Voices Bradford.
The two organisations will collaborate to help boost mental health and wellbeing services across West Yorkshire.
Alison Lowe, CEO of Leeds-based Touchstone, said: “I am delighted to be working closely with Sharing Voices Bradford, who provided the national template for innovative community development work.
“There is great synergy between us in terms of the work we do, and the aims and values of our respective organisations. This partnership will enable us to pool resources and skills for the greater benefit of diverse West Yorkshire communities.”
Touchstone was established 30 years ago, and provides mental health and wellbeing services to over 2000 people a year in West Yorkshire.  A Sunday Times top 100 Best Not for Profit Organisation to Work For, Touchstone is a Stonewall Diversity Champion and a Stonewall Top 100 Employer.
Sharing Voices was set up in Bradford in 2002 to support people in BME communities who live with mental distress, and to help them access appropriate services to enable their recovery.
