West London

West London Citizens is a broad-based alliance of member communities from Westminster to Hounslow, founded in 2005. Members are faith, education, labour and third sector organisations who work together for the common good. Our focus is the development of people and communities so they have the power to make change on the issues that matter. We raise our own money to employ organisers who support our work through training, relationship building and action. We have a Leadership Team composed of people from our member communities who lead and oversee our work. We are nonpartisan and have a track record of working with businesses and with Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians.
