CalmFamily and It’s A Sling Thing merger
CalmFamily and It’s A Sling Thing are merging to create one company. We will form one organisation dedicated to supporting families in the UK and further afield, sharing a fully aligned vision. Our two companies have worked together closely for some time during which we have shared responsibilities and tasks between organisations. As a result, we are ready to take the next steps together. This merger will finalise on 24th March 2020.
It’s A Sling Thing has shared the values of CalmFamily for as long as we have run the company. Through research, education, and support CalmFamily brings evidence-based knowledge of human needs, development, and individualised strategies, to families and professionals. Most significantly, we hope to create a world in which people lead calmer and more equal lives. Subsequently, the CalmFamily values of Evidence, Equality, Empathy, Empowerment, Excellence and Ethics, will continue to underpin all our work. Additionally, we will continue to work as a social enterprise. Therefore, we will reinvest part of any profits into projects to support families.
The short-term and the long-term
Our company will continue to provide all the services we currently offer. Therefore, the excellent CalmFamily training, CalmFamily consultant community, and development of new programs will continue; similarly, the It’s A Sling Thing online shop, sling library and carrying advice service will continue unaffected..
During the initial phase we will continue to trade under separate names, both It’s A Sling thing and CalmFamily. In the longer term, however, we intend to trade solely as CalmFamily, with the launch of our new website in 2021, retaining It’s A Sling Thing to refer to our online sling library.
Following the merger all current memberships of CalmFamily and It’s A Sling Thing will remain valid. There is no change to the terms. Prior bookings of training and sling hires will likewise remain valid. Initially, business will continue as usual. Subsequently we plan to develop the services we offer and will continue to keep you updated with any and all changes.
We are incredibly grateful for your continued support of both CalmFamily and It’s A Sling Thing. Above all we are excited about the possibilities that working together offers, for improving parent support. Likewise, we hope that you will be excited by the extension of parent support services we can offer. Finally, we hope that you will continue to support us, and that we can continue to support you.
