Your Space

Your Space is a project which aims to support communities to support themselves and each other. We are very much led by its members – their ideas, their needs and (key to the success) their strengths.

Commissioned for 3 years and established in April 2019 as a service partnership; Touchstone, Womens Health Matters and Holbeck Elderly Aid came together with their common interest to improve health and wellbeing for their target groups. Your Space hopes to nurture a preventative, protective and self sufficient approach in the key areas of LS8, 9, 10 & 11, to promote healthier living and improved futures.

Our Community Development Workers offer groups and creative activities in accessible locations. Providing space to get involved, seek support, connections with others and signposting to other services.

Understanding wellbeing, recognising signs and symptoms of mental health issues, learning coping skills and building resilience are essentials in the tool kit of healthy living. We offer training to local groups and workforces including awareness raising, mindfulness & meditation. This can be tailored to meet the needs of the organisation.

Our Volunteer programme is the provision for local members to use their skills, experience and interests to strengthen the communities they live in. Its also an opportunity to develop potential through training, working alongside us and making connections with other services and professionals.
