Should there be more charity mergers?

David Walker in the Guardian asks should there be more charity mergers?

The answer is yes.

Walker suggests the creation of an external agency, such as a “Mergers Commission” to “push, perhaps even compel, more charities into mergers”. I’m not so sure about a specific commission to do this, and not one that has a role which requires organistions to merge.

But (in line with my thoughts on mergers and reorgnasionations within government) I do think, in principle, a part of an established organisation working in the third sector could do the job.
