Take part in a new Listening Campaign survey
Trinity is now in its third year as a member of Merton Citizens (MCs). MCs is part of London Citizens, which in turn is part of Citizens UK.
Citizens UK, to quote its website ‘…organises communities to act together for power, social justice and the common good. We are the home of community organising in the UK. Our diverse member organisations include schools, churches, mosques, synagogues, parents’ groups, health practices, charities and trade unions. We help these members to develop leaders, so they can participate in public life and hold politicians and other decision-makers to account on the issues that matter to them.’ Citizens’ best-known campaign is to secure a Living Wage for all employees, which Trinity signed up to in 2016.
MCs currently comprises 19 faith, education and community institutions across the Borough of Merton including some churches that we know through our joint involvement in the Merton Winter Night Shelter; the Raynes Park Community Church who we know well, is a particularly active member.
The current focus of MCs is on a Listening Campaign to find out how its community is faring while living with Covid-19. The emphasis is particularly on housing and mental health issues. Information is being gathered by phone or virtual interviews, and by email, and some of you may already have been asked to take part.
The online survey part of the listening campaign has just been released, and the link to it is here.
If you are able, could you please go to the link and complete the survey as soon as you can? It should take no more than 15 minutes, and the more replies we receive, the more useful the survey will be for Merton Citizens’ work.
