Homeless Charities Merging To Provide More Help To Those In Need

Tue Mar 09 2021

Homeless charity Crisis and Pathway to merge this summer

cloudThing have just been told that the Nonprofit homeless organisations, Crisis and Pathway will be merging this summer to build on existing collaboration between themselves and allow them to provide a “stronger, more united voice”.

They’ll still remain sperate charities but will operate in a group structure, with Pathway becoming a subsidiary of Crisis, with both charities confirming this decision isn’t financially related.

 

Crisis currently provide support for and campaigns for homeless people, with over 600 employees whilst Pathway was created to help the NHS create hospital support teams to help homeless patients and currently employ over 80 members of staff.

 

Both charities have confirmed they’ll continue to offer their services to all whom need them, unchanged by the merger… at least in the short term.

In the longer-term they hope to work much more closely together by combining their expertise in the above areas.

 

Both Chief Executives, Jon Sparkes and Alex Bax, will remain in their current roles.

Having worked together successfully for many years, this merger is an exciting opportunity for both charities to combine our expertise, resources and voices at a time when people experiencing homelessness need us more than ever.

It’s understood this merger won’t see any redundancies, with both NonProfits retaining their current premises and their boards of trustees remaining the same (although one Crisis trustee will also join the Pathway board).

Pathway and Crisis will work together to ensure that the health service, through all its contacts with people experiencing homelessness, fulfils its potential in actively resolving homelessness. The two charities will continue to advocate for policy responses to homelessness that save lives, reduce health inequalities, and promote positive health outcomes for people who are homeless.

By joining together with Crisis we will be able to do even more to support frontline NHS colleagues, build the skills and knowledge of NHS staff, and show how health, housing and care services working together is the best response to homelessness.
