We recently announced our intention to merge with House with No Steps. Our plans were subject to the approval of the members from both organisations (House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation, including Vista).
The Tipping and Vista Annual General Meetings were held yesterday and, after discussing the matter, the vote was unanimously in favour. At the same time, the members from House with No Steps met to vote on the matter, and they too have voted unanimously in support of the merger and passed the vote.
Both membership groups have seen the benefits of a larger more sustainable organisation that creates better options and solutions for people with disability, and so today we are pleased to announce that the merger will proceed as scheduled.
Day one of the merger is scheduled for 1 March 2018, which will essentially be very much like the day before it. We will have the same staff working with the same clients. We will keep you informed as we develop and implement plans to realise the benefits of the change.
We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a safe festive season and a wonderful 2018!
