From 1 April 2017, Salters Hill and Walsingham Support began a merger process that will see Salters Hill officially become a part of Walsingham Support by April 2018.
The Gloucestershire and Herefordshire based charity, Salters Hill, has been providing support for people with learning disabilities in the local community for over 30 years.

Walsingham Support and Salters Hill have spent the last six months working collaboratively to share best-practice in a bid to deliver quality, personalised support to people with disabilities.
Trustees from both organisations have come together to form a Transition Board to oversee and lead the integration of the organisations and ensure a smooth transition.
Established in 1983 Salters Hill is based in Hertfordshire supporting over 80 people and working with over 100 staff and volunteers.
Paul Snell, CEO at Walsingham Support said on the merger
“This is an exciting venture for both Walsingham Support and Salters Hill. Learning from each other’s experiences and sharing our knowledge will help us develop and evolve as an organisation, further improving the lives of the people we support.”
