Cwm Taf Cares

Our philosophy Cwm Taf Cares is at the heart of everything we do as we are committed to the health, wellbeing and development of our staff.

We provide hospital and community based services to people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil. Our vision is to care for our communities and patients by preventing ill-health, promoting better health, providing excellent services and reducing the need for inpatient care wherever possible through the provision of strengthened home, primary and community care.

For more information about life in Cwm Taf, please visit our page.

We value the diversity of our staff and welcome applications from people from protected groups under the Equality Act 2010, this specifically includes age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/reassignment, race, religion, disability, pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnership.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated person to work within a multi disciplinary CAMHS team and provide therapeutic packages of care to children and young people and their families, within the defined areas.

The post holder will carry out comprehensive assessments within tier2 CAMHS, including assessments of self harm and risk and be responsible for a caseload.

The post holder will liaise closely with other agencies and professionals and provide consultation when required. There will also be a need to provide teaching and training to others.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post.
