Coronavirus (Covid-19) Outbreak – Local Community Action
The Local Labour Party is grateful to many of its 580 members for stepping up and helping in the community in the current period. We also know of members and many local who are vulnerable and are being cocooned for the duration of the outbreak. We want to encourage our members and supporters and the public in general to take action locally to support their community. Below is some useful information:
Support for vulnerable people in the local Community. Sutton and Cheam Labour has a proud tradition of providing solidarity and support in a crisis. We provided our old Hall as a works canteen for people on the Home Front in the Second World War through to collecting food for the Miners in the 1980’s up to support for people hit by austerity in the last decade with food collections. We are providing similar support this time. Across the country there have already been established over 20o0 Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK Groups. Their details are on their website here, Facebook here and Twitter here. Local Party members are working with others in the local community in local groups. A list of local groups is here and there are already one for Sutton and Cheam here and Worcester Park here. Our EC agreed we would also want to encourage collection of food for both Sutton Nightwatch here and Holiday Hunger food collections to the local foodbank here if, as is likely, schools are shut for a prolonged period.

Sutton and Cheam Labour
Welcome to Sutton and Cheam Labour Party’s website. We are an active local Party rooted in the local community:
Labour stands for the many not the few
Labour is active and campaigning locally
Labour is the voice of protecting public services in Sutton: St Helier Hospital land under threat, bringing contracts in-house, building Council housing
The Lib Dems are ruining Sutton: record complaints over waste collection, poor consultation over parking, the Incinerator, building on Rosehill Park
The Lib Dems and Tories run Sutton. They are in it together: the impact of austerity from the previous Con/Lib coalition runs deep in this borough
Our ongoing aim is to build stronger networks in the community to campaign for social change
