Detail

Charities that work together can operate more efficiently, deliver better services and save money. This can happen by sharing services and staff, or by formally merging charities together.

This guidance highlights issues for charity trustees and staff. It describes:

  • ways of working in partnership
  • different types of structures
  • the processes involved

The guidance helps charity trustees decide whether they want to proceed, how to go about it. and when to involve the Charity Commission.
