Community Support Team

Please note that at this time the Touchstone Community Support Team (CST) are currently unable to accept referrals. The decision has been made to close the waiting list, as it is currently too long for clients with complex mental health conditions.

We also wish to inform you that CST has a new service specification, and in future will only be able to accept referrals from LYPFT services.

CST are currently accepting referrals from:

Aire Court CMHT

If you are from one of the above teams and wish to make a referral please contact Touchstone House and request a referral form.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support.
