We know what it takes to make your collaboration a success
Maybe you’re looking to increase your funding options – or maybe you’re seeking creative ways to increase expertise, skills and knowledge; bringing a better, more joined-up service for your beneficiaries. Working with other organisations might help to achieve this or other aims.
The Charity Governance Code recommends that trustees ‘consider the benefits and risks of partnership working, merger or dissolution if other organisations are fulfilling similar charitable purposes more effectively and/or if the charity’s viability is uncertain.’
We advise across the full spectrum of collaborations, from informal arrangements through to joint ventures and full mergers. We understand the importance of considering heritage, brand, culture and compatibility as thoroughly as we understand the legal and regulatory steps you’ll need to take.
We’ve helped countless charities into successful collaborative working relationships – and we’ve advised on some of the sector’s largest mergers of recent years. We’ve even jointly published the definitive accessible guide, Thinking about… merger, together with the Institute for Voluntary Action Research.
