Meet the Merton Heroes protecting and supporting vulnerable residents.

We are raising awareness about the critical work being done by the council’s front line staff, who are out in the community providing essential services every day under difficult circumstances.

They have been joined by teams of colleagues who have been redeployed from their usual roles across the council to provide vital support for some of the most vulnerable people in the community. These include residents who have been unable to leave their homes during the lockdown because they are self-isolating or were advised by the NHS to shield because they are believed to be at greater risk of becoming critically ill if they catch the virus.

Our staff have been working closely in partnership with Merton Voluntary Service Council to set up the Merton COVID-19 Community Response Hub, which has been supported by a number of other organisations across Merton and an army of volunteers.

Merton Together showcases how our Merton Heroes are organising the delivery of essential supplies of food and medicine to residents’ doorsteps. We want to thank them all for their hard work, kindness and dedication to helping us to get through the pandemic together.
