Our plan for Cwm Taf Morgannwg

In 2019/2020, the Cwm Taf Morgannwg region was given £12,967,664 of ICF revenue funding and £5,049,000 of capital funding to improve and develop sustainable services for people living in Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil.

The Regional Commissioning Unit worked with health, local authority, third sector, education and housing partners to put together a plan on how the funding will be used across health and social care.

By working together, we can ensure the funding results in a better experience and outcomes for individuals and communities.
