Joint announcement from the June O’Connor Centre and Neami National CEO’s

9 December 2016

The June O’Connor Centre Inc. (JOC) and Neami National (Neami) would like to announce a shared agreement to explore a merger between both organisations. 

Both organisations will engage in a full due diligence process. Should the due diligence prove successful, both parties will proceed with a merger. If a merger proceeds, it has been agreed that JOC would become a part of Neami and continuity of care to JOC consumers would be maintained with current support staff. 

This is an exciting opportunity for both organisations while it may also be sensitive for some of our key stakeholders - particularly our clients, their families, carers and staff. Together, JOC and Neami will work to support all of our stakeholders and we will provide regular updates to keep clients, carers and staff informed. 

The Boards, and Leadership Teams of both organisations believe such a transition would be a great outcome for the improved sustainability of both organisations and for the breadth of opportunities that this will open up to JOC clients, their families and community.
