In an environment of uncertainty with scarce resources, merger can offer smaller voluntary or community organisations a strategy to survive, thrive and meet users’ needs more effectively. But there are risks and challenges to consider before taking this step. Our free merger workshop is designed to help you decide whether merger is right for you.
Organised by Community First Yorkshire with the Institute of Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) and York CVS for voluntary organisations in York and North, South and West Yorkshire. Topics will include: the drivers for merger in voluntary organisations; success factors; legal and formal requirements; the ‘lived’ experience; and the opportunities and challenges a merger presents.
