It is with great sadness that the Board of Emergence Plus CIC regrets to announce that Emergence is being placed into liquidation following a reduction in funding. As many of you know all too well, the mental health and criminal justice sectors are facing significant financial difficulty. This, in turn, has had a knock on effect on the services commissioned from Emergence.
It is with a great sense of loss that we draw the work of Emergence to a close. As a result of this situation, Emergence is unfortunately no longer able to provide any further services or respond to callers.
The Facebook and Twitter accounts will close on August 31 – but please note, as of August 15, 2016 we are no longer posting on these social media sites.
Further information regarding the liquidation process is available from: Lucas Johnson Limited: 0161 929 8666.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our members, partners, colleagues, and supporters who have helped champion the voice of people with lived experience. Together we have worked to challenge the stigma and discrimination often experienced by people given a label of personality disorder, both within services and more broadly. We hope that in these difficult times this work and our legacy can live on.
As a service-user led organisation, Emergence has a huge breadth of knowledge and experience, from a service user and carer perspective. This places us in the perfect position to provide training and consultancy services to any organisation that is dealing with the challenges of personality disorders (PD).
