The Liaison and Diversion (L&D) Service works with people of all ages (including children and young people) with a wide range of vulnerabilities including poor mental health and learning disabilities, who have offended or are at risk of offending. We support service users who have contact with police stations, the courts, prisons and probation. The Liaison and Diversion service is delivered by Wakefield Council across the West Yorkshire Police force area. The team is a multi-agency, multi skilled team. Touchstone is one of the partners in the service.
The aim is to work together to reduce the risk factors for reoffending by providing short-term support and signposting service users into longer-term support services. L&D service across West Yorkshire will operate 7 days per week from 08.00 to 18.00. Project Workers will be required to work shifts to ensure appropriate cover, this will include regular weekend and evening work.
