Dan Minchin says the new merged entity will combine the best of the three organisations and offer increased benefits to the community

Former Silver Chain Group senior executive Dan Minchin will lead three community care providers into a new era when they merge into one organisation later this year.

Plans for Community First, Care Options and Volunteer Task Force to merge into one entity were announced November last year.

Mr Minchin will take on the role of chief executive of the as-yet unnamed organisation from February 1.

While Community First and Volunteer Task Forcefocus solely on Western Australia, Care Options' multiple programs operate across Perth and from an office in Adelaide.

According to the latest publicly available financial reports, the combined revenue of the three groups as a single entity would total just under $28 million -  ranking it 14th in the state on the BNiQ Search Engine of charitable organisations.

Combined assets would total near $22 million, while net assets would be around $14 million.

“The new entity will combine the very best of three much-loved community organisations, enabling us to truly offer increased benefits to the people of Perth, regional WA and Adelaide,” Mr Minchin said.

“The opportunity to join at this pivotal time is extremely exciting.”

Mr Minchin was at Silver Chain Group from 2010 to 2016, as head of strategy and general manager, east coast, during a time when the organisation was in the process of expanding beyond its WA home into four states.

In 2011, Mr Minchin played a significant role in ensuring the merger of Silver Chain Group and the Royal District Nursing Service in South Australia caused minimal disruption to services.

Mr Minchin has also worked as an executive and strategic adviser in aged care, health and the wider social sector, and has over 20 years of consulting experience with WA organisations across strategy, business development, transformation and service delivery.

Moira Watson, chair of the merged entity, said Mr Minchin’s experience would be beneficial as the three providers transitioned into one organisation.

“We are creating a purposeful, creative and thriving new care organisation,” Dr Watson said.

“We look forward to beginning our journey with Dan at the helm, ensuring a smooth transition of services for all our clients as we continue to build a reputation for providing exceptional community care services in Perth.”
