The staff team at Ballymoney are experienced, compassionate and qualified to meet the many needs of those who seek our support and services.
All staff receive trauma specific training, which they build upon throughout their career. They take a person-centred approach, putting the individual with trauma at the core of their work. Many individuals accessing these services are not only trying to overcome their bereavement or injury but also living with the trauma of deprivation, poverty, exclusion and intimidation.
