Opening June 2021

LSLCS is a nationally recognised, multi award winning mental health charity, which provides an alternative, non-medical approach to emotional distress. We provide out of hours services to people in acute mental health crisis, who may otherwise end up in psychiatric services, A&E, or other crisis and emergency provision. Our flagship service (Dial House) has been running since 1999. We now also have a BAME specific crisis service (Dial House @ Touchstone), a young person’s face to face crisis service (Safe Zone); and a helpline (Connect), which includes a specialist service for 11-18 year olds (Teen Connect) and support in BSL. We work in partnership with Touchstone in delivering The Wellbean Crisis Cafes and with Leeds Mind in delivering the Leeds Suicide Bereavement Service. We also provide daytime group work.

We will shortly be opening a Children & Young People’s Overnight crisis line, which will run initially as a 6 month pilot project. This exciting new service will be different from our existing support lines as it is open 8pm till 8am to Children and Young People and their parents/carers, across the whole of West Yorkshire.

The role of the Crisis Line Support Workers will be to work remotely (from home) to run (usually with another remote support worker) the overnight support line to enable Children & Young People, as well as Parents/Carers to access emotional support in times of crisis, to signpost or refer to relevant day time support services, to contain and manage safeguarding issues and to support the promotion of this new service. The service is accessed via phone, text and webchat.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Theresa Grant, Night OWLS Service Manager on 0113 260 9328 or email theresa.grant@lslcs.org.uk

Closing Date: 12 noon, Monday 24th May Interview Date: Monday, 31st May

Our Vision

The Community Matters vision is to provide a sustainable and effective "hub" of learning, support, advice and guidance, enabling local communities and organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of a high quality service.

We do this in a number of ways through our various projects which at the moment concentrate on working with children, young people and families. But not exclusively. We are able to provide training, learning opportunities and business related advice, guidance and information to individuals and organisations.
