Liaison and Diversion is a specialist team that offers signposting and support to access treatment to people who have offended who are vulnerable.
What services do we offer?
Our Liaison and Diversion Team is a dedicated service which is a NHS England funded project to address health inequalities for vulnerable people who enter the criminal justice system. The service identifies need and then signposts and offers support for people to engage with the services who can meet them. The service is all age and all vulnerability therefore we currently work with all people who are over the age of criminal responsibility. We are not a treatment service and can only accept referrals from the criminal justice system but can work alongside your service if you have service users who are currently involved with the police or court. We are made up of a mixture of staff who all have identified skills in one of many vulnerabilities we can work to support.
