We are very excited to welcome our new Chairman Fr Michael Daley, who is currently a CCS Trustee and Parish Priest of Holy Cross, Parsons Green. Fr Michael will bring his experience as a qualified Mental Health Professional and provide invaluable insights to guide our growing mental health services for children and young people.



Fr Michael’s message to our supporters:

“I’m honoured to have been appointed Chair of Trustees of the Catholic Children’s Society by our President, Cardinal Vincent Nichols. I am grateful to my predecessor, Monsignor Phelim Rowland, for his generous guidance and support since I became a trustee and now take on this new role.

“CCS has a long and dedicated history of holistic and pastoral service to children and families. I am now in a position to make my own contribution in increasingly challenging times. I do this in collaboration with all the other trustees and the leadership and workforce. I am deeply grateful for the kindness and compassion shown by our supporters, without whom none of our work would be possible. Please keep me in your prayers as I take on my new responsibilities.”
