Multi-Disciplinary Support

Support to schools often requires a multi-disciplinary approach so CCMS has three Locality teams with Officers from each Directorate. These teams work collectively to provide support to schools in the localities below, as well as the five dioceses. These Teams are a primary contact point for schools, but staff work flexibly across areas according to demand and need. Our full staff team can be viewed here.

Locality 2: Derry & Strabane, Causeway Coast & Glens, Mid & East Antrim, Antrim & Newtownabbey
