Transform Housing & Support and Cherchefelle Housing Association have announced a proposed merger between the two organisations.
Under the proposals, Cherchefelle will merge into Transform and the enlarged organisation will operate as Transform Housing & Support. The merged organisation will see 211 staff supporting 1,382 people in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, West Sussex, Sutton and Richmond upon Thames.
Paul Mitchell, Chief Executive of Transform Housing & Support, said:
“This merger will bring together two well-respected local organisations that provide housing and support for people in need in our communities. We will combine the best from both Transform and Cherchefelle, to create an organisation that is sustainable and independent for the future. This will ensure we provide the best possible outcomes for the people we support.”
Martin Bellinger, Chief Executive of Cherchefelle Housing Association, added:
“Cherchefelle and Transform were founded in 1970 and 1972 respectively and share similar values and approach. Both organisations work to enhance the lives of local people, supporting them to live more independently. We look forward to working together to transform even more lives.”
The proposed merger is subject to the approval of the Homes and Communities Agency.
