This festive season, we want to shine a light on our incredible community, which has shown time and time again that we are here for each other.
The Merton Together campaign supports the borough by connecting residents in need of help with the right support, and by promoting ways to volunteer, donate and care for the vulnerable.
We have put together some information about the support available in Merton from us and our partners as well as information on money-saving ideas and tips and free events in the borough to help you have a very merry low-cost Christmas.
So whether you or someone you know needs some help or you want to help others, let's bring #MertonTogether.
