Merton Giving

Merton Giving is a charitable initiative from partners MVSC and Merton Chamber of Commerce, supported by Merton Council. It provides a focal point for local giving with the aim of tackling inequality in the borough of Merton.

Based on the notion that everyone has something to give, no matter how small - we encourage people and businesses to give money, time or in-kind support, to help local people and make a positive difference to their lives.
