Innovative charities The Bridge Project and Spacious Places will merge with effect from 30th June 2021.
The merger is the culmination of a long association between the two organisations and many months of planning. Bridge and Spacious Places share the same values, and each believe that there are many pathways to recovery and everyone’s journey is unique.
Spacious Places will retain its programme ethos and fidelity to the 12 Step abstinence model. It will benefit from being part of a larger organisation that will provide a robust clinical and financial governance framework. Bridge has previous experience of taking over the management of community recovery organisations, helping them become more financially sustainable and manage risks effectively, without compromising their peer led recovery ethos.
Spacious Places will continue to accept referrals in the usual way and all elements of the service will transition seamlessly. This is an exciting time and the merger decision has been taken in the best interests of the people we support, whose needs we will continue to serve.
