Iâ€™m am pleased to let you know that at separate meetings last week, both theÂ Crossroads Care and The Princess Royal Trust for Carers boards voted in favourÂ of continuing to work together in order to progress with the merger.
The boards will continue to finalise and review the proposals, but it is intendedÂ that the plan to form a new national charity will now go ahead, subject to formalÂ approval from The Trustâ€™s members at an EGM on December 151, and theÂ fulfilment of other conditions, including the consent of the Office of ScottishÂ Charities Regulator which will be required before the merger can take place.
This presents a great opportunity for both charities to come together to create aÂ united and stronger network and voice â€“ a voice that will enable us to raise moreÂ awareness of carersâ€™ issues and more resources to develop and deliver highÂ quality services and support to meet their needs.
We are working towards a target date for the transfer of both organisations toÂ New Charity on 31 March 2012, with New Charity operational from 1 April 2012.
Planning for the new charity is now well underway, and we have already sharedÂ details of the strategic plan and network offer at recent focus groups andÂ conferences. We will be carrying out further meetings in the new year, to giveÂ both networks the chance to comment on and influence plans for the NewÂ Charity.
If you have any queries regarding this formation of a new national charity, thenÂ please email email@example.com
