Ripplez – Catch22

Ripplez merged with social business and charity Catch22 on 1st January 2021. Another of E3M’s member organisations, Catch22 aims to build resilience and aspiration in people and communities. 

Ripplez has joined Catch22’s thriving Young People and Families hub to extend its founding mission, which is “to make a difference to the lives of families and women by delivering innovative and quality support to break the cycle of disadvantage, enabling them to achieve their highest potential and benefit future generations.”

The merger presents a real opportunity to grow successful early intervention services for vulnerable families via an exciting new type of relationship between larger and smaller third sector organisations. Within Catch22, Ripplez continues to deliver a range of early intervention evidence-based programmes in the Midlands, in areas including Derbyshire, Worcestershire and Northamptonshire.

In Catch22 it has found a strategic partner with an aligned vision, mission and values, to ensure the future sustainability and continuation of these services, as well as maximising strategic opportunities for future growth to develop and deliver its evidence-based services in more areas.

Ripplez – Catch22

Name:Justine Gibling

Title :Strategic Director

Justine Gibling was appointed as CEO for Ripplez in April 2015 and has successfully guided the organisation into its merger with Catch22.

With a career in the public sector spanning ca. 30 years, in Family Support and Integrated Working in Children's Social Care and Derby City Sure Start Programmes, Justine has also worked as a Senior Manager for Early Years and Early Help services in Telford & Wrekin and Nottinghamshire County Council, improving services for families and young children which has also involved being a key Commissioner for the Nottinghamshire Children's Centres and a stakeholder for the Family Nurse Partnership.

"I have been passionate about the Family Nurse Partnership intervention and a strong supporter of the programme in all of my roles. I was delighted to share the Ripplez teams' enthusiasm and dedication for improving outcomes for young parents, babies and their communities.

“This partnership with Catch22 demonstrates innovation in how Public Sector Mutuals can work together to continue to benefit the people who use their services and adapt to a particularly difficult commissioning landscape – small mutuals don’t want to disappear, but might struggle to carry on as independent organisations."
