​Merton's Community Plan is the overarching strategic plan of the Merton Partnership. It sets out the partnership's long term vision and priorities for the borough up until 2019.

Merton's refreshed Community Plan 2013

Over 8 months, a planning group led by an independent, community-based chair led an extensive engagement process with voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations, businesses, local partners and communities across the borough to develop Merton's new Community Plan for 2013.

The planning group, with over 50% VCS membership, had overall responsibility for steering the content and design of Merton's new Community Plan, as well as overseeing engagement, publication, and distribution.

Over five hundred residents and 50 private, public and VCS organisations took part in the engagement process, which included online surveys, Facebook and Twitter dialogue, paper questionnaires, video interviews, and over 30 public meetings.

The resulting plan showcases the valuable role of the VCS in the borough in meeting the needs of residents across key services areas (health, children, environment) and the important part volunteering continues to play in contributing to positive outcomes for all Merton residents.
