The principle activity of CCT(NI) is the holding of property and other assets for the use in the education, training, and support of children, young people, and adults with learning disabilities. CCT(NI) also provides advice and support to the Communities.

Based around inclusive communities and encouraging personal expression, Camphill Communities NI offers a life full of celebration and the joy of accomplishment to adults and children with learning disabilities, mental health problems, and other support needs.

The Camphill ethos is that of community life where, according to ability, each person contributes towards the well-being of the community as a whole and of its members. Residents, co-workers and their families live and work alongside each other sharing personal joys and sorrows, failures and achievements, fears and dreams together throughout the year. The communities provide purpose-built housing, woodwork, weaver and bakery workshops, social and recreational spaces, sustainable gardens and farms, all with the shared intention of giving their residents, young and old, a safe and peaceful outlet to unearth hidden talents and fulfil personal aspirations.

There are four Camphill Communities in Northern Ireland: Camphill Clanabogan (Omagh), Camphill Glencraig (Craigavad), Camphill Holywood, and Camphill Mourne Grange (Kilkeel).

In the Camphill Movement, communities are formed in such a way that the members, whatever their abilities, can help to support the needs of their fellows, while they themselves are supported in turn. Co-workers chose to do their work not as a job, but as a way of life, with social rather than personal values taking priority.

Camphill Communities Trust (NI) provides a range of advice and support to the Communities across the areas of planning, service provision/development, finance and training. A further principal activity of the Trust is the holding of property and other assets for the use in the education, training, and support of children, young people, and adults with learning disabilities.
