Match Points: A research summary of mergers among charities and social enterprises

This research report, commissioned by Social Investment Business and written by Eastside Primetimers    examines mergers in the charity and social enterprise sector.

Over the past five years, detailed research and engagement with charity managers have provided a clear picture of a sector not yet able to harness the potential demonstrated by the rare mergers we have seen. 

Our aim from the outset of this work was to uncover what practical and knowledge-related barriers are preventing VCSEs from pursuing mergers with greater confidence. This is essential for understanding how support can best be structured to address their real needs.
