CHANGING LIVES IN MERTON – we are Merton Giving.
Merton Means Business is changing.
The initiative which links local business with local activity to mutual advantage is stepping up a gear and will be developed into Merton Giving.
Merton Giving is part of the dynamic London’s Giving network, developing across London, to bring communities together to tackle local issues. With an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse the London’s Giving schemes are breaking new ground on how communities can solve issues such as poverty, exclusion, loneliness, mental health and unemployment, from the grassroots.
Based on the notion that we can all give something – time, skills as well as money – Merton Giving will work to build relationships with businesses, community groups and individuals to support local charities.
With a knowledge of the community’s key issues and acting on facts, data and hard evidence Merton Giving will provide local charities with the resources to deliver programmes which benefit those in need in our borough.
We understand a tailor-made approach is the key to success and will work to provide bespoke solutions to ensure mutually beneficial relationships.
Merton Giving Week
A big thank you to everyone who supported us during Merton Giving Week – from taking an active part in fundraising to supporting us on social media, people have played their part. Our fundraising will go to the Merton Giving Fund and support charities who work to help the most vulnerable in our borough.
Merton Chamber’s previous Business Engagement Manager Raymond Kinsella, , introduced Charity Jigsaw4u to Reed Wimbledon:
“Developing a relationship with a national company such as REED has had great benefits that we hadn’t even foreseen, such as giving us credibility when talking to other businesses interested in supporting us. It has helped us to reach so many more people and shown us the generosity of our community. Having the support of the determined REED team meant that we were able to help whole families feel a little more cheerful.”Michelle Mullarkey
