Communities that Care (CtC) are pleased to announce that as from Friday 1 December, it has become part of the young people’s charity Rainer.

Speaking at a joint conference in central London Joyce Moseley, Chief Executive of Rainer said: “CTC will add a real rigour to our work across the country.  We know how important certain risk factors are in tackling young people’s problems but it is not always easy to identify the main risks within a neighbourhood.  We’ll also be working with CTC and other partners to see how this process can strengthen much of the current planning work being undertaken by Children’s Trusts.”

Peter SMith, Chief Executive of Communities that Care said: “We are delighted to be joining Rainer, an organisation that combines a strong track record in the delivery of high-quality services for young people with a real understanding of the totality of young people’s lives and the importance of responding to the whole person.  These qualities make Rainer a natural home for CtC, and will enable us, together, to build on the achievements of the past nine years.

Rainer is the national charity for under-supported young people.  They work with 18,000 young people and young adults across the country – including those who are at risk of family breakdown, in or leaving care, caught up in the criminal justice system, homeless, or outside education, training or employment.  Further information may be found at www.raineronline.org.

CtC was a registered charity established with the support of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in 1997. CtC is a prevention programme based on an understanding of risk and protective factors which aims to tackle and reduce:

Over the past 6 years CtC has been pioneering a new way of working which is both community led and evidence based and which puts young people at the heart of community planning.
