You asked for better information about Covid-19
We held more than 80 events, reaching over 2000 people to engage them on the important of protecting yourself against Covid-19, including testing and getting vaccinated during the pandemic.
Joint working between Faith in Action, Faith and Belief Forum, Polish Families Association, Wimbledon Community Forum, Raynes Park Community Forum and Carers Support Merton as well as other community groups has helped inform residents and raise awareness amongst our community on how to protect themselves.
We have used social media to widen our reach and to signpost people to trusted sources of information, including our own single source of truth website which includes the latest information about vaccines and other Covid-19 related news.
Finally, we worked with local residents to produce a brand ‘Ask me about the vaccine’ and employed local residents to work as street ambassadors having thousands of conversations with local residents and business owners to make sure everyone had the opportunity to get up-to-date Merton specific information.
