This Chapter picks up from Chapters 2 and 3, and describes the establishment of the Northern Ireland Centre for Trauma and Transformation (NICTT), which was founded to build upon the work and experience of the Omagh Community Trauma and Recovery Team, after its closure in 2001. The author outlines the philosophy behind the new Centre and its programmes, and describes the some of the obstacles and circumstances in creating a distinctive service, in the post conflict period (where nonetheless there was still violence). The Chapter describes the extensive consultations within and beyond the Omagh community. The governance and management of the Centre is described along with challenges in funding and mainstreaming the skills and services developed by the Centre. The development of the Centre’s five key programmes - therapy, research, training and education, policy support and humanitarian relief, are outlined and described further in later chapters.
