Merton Voluntary Service Council (MVSC) has not been immune to the funding cuts and challenges faced by many voluntary and community sector organisations over the past few years.
As a result of reduced resources, we have recently gone through an organisational review to ensure that we continue to be fit for purpose and go forward in a more sustainable position while remaining true to our vision and mission:
 “A thriving Merton community where people’s lives are enriched by voluntary and community action”
On Thursday 5th April, Merton Voluntary Service Council hosted the Merton Local Elections Husting. To watch the event. Please click here
