Crime Concern and Rainer make merger official

From today Rainer and Crime Concern will operate as a single charity, based in new offices on London's Old Street. It will continue to operate all the current projects of both youth organisations.

So far the move has resulted in only one redundancy – that of Clare Checksfield, former chief executive of Crime Concern, who took up her post earlier this year. No more job losses are expected in the short term, although the charity has not ruled them out.

The new organisation has 1,100 staff and an income of £42m, making it one of the 120 biggest charities in England and Wales. Joyce Moseley, chief executive of Rainer, will take over the running of both organisations.

"We're moving towards having an official launch party in November," a spokeswoman for the new charity said. It has yet to decide on a name.

"We've appointed a marketing consultant to look at the new name," said the spokeswoman. "We're consulting staff about all our procedures, and our teams are getting together to look at the way things are done across the organisation."
