Kisharon and Langdon are merging. The newly formed charity, Kisharon Langdon, will offer a wider breadth of services of enhanced quality, enabling us to better support people with learning disabilities and autism and their families. The organisation remains dedicated to meeting unique religious and cultural needs, fostering an inclusive environment.

From nursery and school to further education, through to employment opportunities and supported living, Kisharon Langdon will enable people with learning disabilities and autism to thrive and realise their ambitions and aspirations.

As one organisation, we will be able to offer more opportunities to the people we support.

“The merger of Kisharon and Langdon is clearly an important development for the many hundreds of service users who will benefit from the consolidation of these wonderful organisations – each one of which has been a jewel in the crown of the Anglo Jewish community for so many years. It also sends a very powerful message about what can be achieved when charities with similar objectives can combine their resources, expertise and networks for the greater good of our community. This is a proud moment for our community – may Kisharon Langdon go mechayil el Chayil – from strength to added strength as it embarks on this exciting new chapter of its work.”

Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim Mirvis KBE

“We have a daughter who has been a Member of Langdon for quite some time and is living a full life, taking part in some employment opportunities and many organised social activities and holidays and is living as independent a life as possible. We feel very positive about the merger and are very optimistic about the future opportunities that this will create for the Members of both organisations.”

Carole and Jonathan Joseph

“The Wohl Legacy has been delighted to support the merger of Kisharon Langdon. We acknowledge the leadership of trustees from both organisations, who each put the needs of their clients, residents, families and wider Jewish community ahead of own their individual organisations in order to ensure common good and future sustainability. We wish Kisharon Langdon every success.”

Kate Goldberg, Chief Executive, Wohl Legacy

“What Kisharon and Langdon have achieved is extraordinary. Through the leadership of Langdon Chairman Nigel Henry, former CEO Neil Taylor, Kisharon Chairman Philip Goldberg and CEO Richard Franklin, they have shown professionalism, researched and identified duplication and led by example in putting service users first. The coming together of both JLC member organisations will benefit their service users, the sector and the entire community and we wish the new, stronger and combined Kisharon Langdon every success going forward.”

Keith Black, Chair of the Jewish Leadership Council

“I’m very pleased to hear of the coming merger of two fantastic Jewish social care charities in Barnet: Kisharon & Langdon. 

Both organisations have served our community with great distinction in the past, providing supported living, personalised education & support, employment assistance, and social activities to allow hundreds of adults and young people with learning disabilities and autism to live independent lives.

I am confident that this merger will have undoubted positive benefits for social care provision in my constituency, and I look forward to hearing more on their work moving forward.”
