Story of a merger

November 2011

Eliza Buckley, Ben Cairns, Romayne Hutchison


In April 2011, the British Association of Settlements and Social Action Centres (bassac) and the Development Trusts Association (DTA) merged to form Locality, the leading nationwide network of settlements, development trusts, social action centres and community enterprises.   This report offers a detailed account of the merger, based on re-examination of documents generated during the merger process and on interviews with five of the key participants. We also give our perspective as facilitators of the merger.   This report is aimed at the staff and trustees of other organisations contemplating merger. It forms a companion to Thinking about … Merger.
