Overlapping homelessness charities merge
Homelessness charities Catalyst NE and the Depaul Trust have merged, the pair announced this week.
The two organisations decided to merge after it became apparent they were carrying out the same work in the region. All Catalyst staff – about 20 people – have now become Depaul employees.
Lisa Short, community fundraising assistant for Depaul, who handled communications for Catalyst, said the merger strengthened Catalyst’s work. “Through merging we are able to offer a broader range of projects to our young people,” she said.
“There was one particular project we offered where there was lots of overlap, and this is just a better position for the service.”
