Liaison and Diversion Service Career and Competence Framework  

Liaison and Diversion is a process whereby people of all ages with mental health problems, a learning disability, substance misuse problems and other vulnerabilities are identified and assessed as early as possible as they pass through the youth justice and criminal justice systems. It is available for employers of mental health and learning disability workforces.

A useful resource for staff and their managers, commissioners and education and training providers, the framework helps to describe the Liaison and Diversion service offer, and includes the skills and knowledge required by the workforce at various Career Framework levels, as well as the education and training required to progress within the service.

The framework is available to access as a downloadable pdf from the Skills for Health website.
