Manchester charities merge

Manchester Care becomes a subsidiary of national charity Community Integrated Care

A charity supporting older people in Manchester has become part of a national adult care organisation in an effort to strengthen its finances.

Manchester Care has become a subsidiary of care charity Community Integrated Care, the two organisations have announced.

Some redundancies are expected as part of the move, but CIC said it was unable to confirm how many posts could be affected. Manchester Care has 726 employees; CIC employs 3,322 staff.

Gill Adamson, chair of Manchester Care, said the organisation hoped to strengthen its financial position and expand its services after the merger, which will see the charity retain its name.

"A year ago, Manchester Care recognised that to sustain and grow our care services we required a viable and secure financial platform," she said.

Pauline Gay, head of communications and marketing at CIC, said: "The charity sector is very competitive. It makes good business sense for a smaller charity to join forces with a larger group that shares similar charitable aims and service provision expertise."
