Job Description

The CAMHS Intensive Support Team (IST) across Bedfordshire and Luton have opportunities for experienced Mental Health professionals to join our developing team as a CAMHS Senior Social Worker.

From January 2020 until June 2021 Bedfordshire CAMHS completed a successful pilot, in collaboration with Central Bedfordshire Childrens Services, called the Intensive Support Team. This was part of the transforming care programme, working assertively to keep young people with learning disabilities and/or Autism closer to home without the need for inpatient units and / or from becoming a Looked After Child.

Following the successful pilot, funding has now been secured to set up a substantive IST across the ICS in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK). We are excited to be expanding our service and are looking for 6 experienced full time Band 7, permanent clinicians to work with young people in the community in creative and innovative ways.
