During their merger discussions, the two Boards of Keech Hospice Care & Bedford Daycare Hospice established the need to source some external resource to provide additional support in the areas of:
- Expertise, knowledge, and support around all areas of charity merger processes
- Project planning, guidance, and facilitation to support the process and timeline to merger and implementation
- Input to the Due Diligence process.
Experienced in merger project planning, guidance, and facilitation, Eastside People consultant John Gibbons was appointed to lead and manage the project.
After a thorough due diligence process, the project has been completed and the 2 highly respected charities have merged.
The merged operation was announced on 6th June 2023, and we can now say how delighted we were to work with Keech Hospice Care & Bedford Daycare Hospice on the successful merger of their organisations. We wish the new organisation well as they build on their strong histories to deliver a wider range of services and a more sustainable future for everyone involved.
