A CEREDIGION social landlord and a support service have announced that they have merged voluntarily.
The Cambrian News reported “Registered social landlord Tai Ceredigion and The Care Society, which provides support services for vulnerable people, including running Aberystwyth’s night shelter, have been working together for over five years, including on supported housing schemes for Aberystwyth and Bow Street.
The two organisations have now announced they have merged, with Tai Ceredigion, which took over the management of Ceredigion County Council’s former housing stock in 2009, becoming the parent body and The Care Society becoming a subsidiary company.
While a spokesperson for Tai Ceredigion said it is unlikely to impact on tenants, service users or landlords with both organisations keeping a separate identity, they said it would help to boost the current partnership between the organisations.
Karen Oliver, the chair of Tai Ceredigion, said: “The potential for strengthening our current link is very exciting.
“Joining forces formally will ensure that some of the most vulnerable in our communities throughout Ceredigion will be supported through their housing journey.”
Care Society chair Robert Gray added: “We already work together to provide emergency temporary accommodation for those most in need in Ceredigion.
“The merger will benefit our clients.
“It is a very exciting time for both organisations” here.
