Is a Crisis Café that supports anyone in a crisis – it provides a safe place for people in crisis to go and to prevent avoidable attendances at A&E.

It is funded by NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group. We offer a 7-day service to anyone in crisis living in the Kirklees area. We have cafes in Huddersfield and Dewsbury town centre.

Anyone wishing to attend the cafes can self-refer or ask a professional health or social care worker to refer them. The phone lines for referrals open from 6pm at both cafes.
