Merton Citizens

 

Merton Priory – including Christ Church – is a founder member of the newly-launched Merton Citizens organisation, affiliated to Citizens UK.  Merton Citizens will be campaigning for

  • affordable housing in Merton,
  • a welcome for refugees,
  • better mental health support for young people
  • cleaner streets

At the launch events, on 19 April, Merton councillors from all major parties pledged to support these goals.
