Touchstone is a multi-award-winning mental health and wellbeing charity operating in communities across Yorkshire.  Touchstone understands that we can only deliver excellence to the people we serve if the people we recruit are happy, empowered, supported to reach their potential and trusted to lead.

The Community Rehabilitation Enhanced Support Team (CREST) is a unique community mental health service providing intensive and flexible wrap around support for individuals across West Yorkshire (Leeds, Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield, & Bradford). Many service users have experienced long lengths of stay in locked hospital placements and are disconnected from their community. We work with service users and their family and carers prior to discharge, supporting them into step down provision and beyond.

The service works across two pathways, supporting people with Serious Mental Illness, and Complex Emotional Needs. These roles will be within our Serious Mental Illness pathway, and recovery workers will empower individuals so they can define, build, and live meaningful, independent, and satisfying lives closer to their community, by providing emotional and practical support to service users.
