About the service

Community Links deliver the Liaison and Diversion service in partnership with Leeds Community Health Care NHS Trust, who are the lead provider, in creating a seamless link between police custody and healthcare services across Humberside.

Aims of the service

The service identifies people who have mental health, learning disability, substance misuse or other vulnerabilities, supporting them through the early stages of the criminal justice system pathway, with the aim to improve overall health outcomes and to support people in the reduction of re-offending. We aim to identify vulnerabilities in people earlier on which reduces the likelihood that people will reach a crisis point and helps to ensure the right support can be put in place from the start.

We work with people for up to 12 weeks to find and refer them to services and organisations that will support them to address the vulnerabilities that have been identified. The main aim of the service is to divert people out of the criminal justice system and into the most appropriate support, increasing their engagement in longer term services.
