South London Citizens
Who are we?
South London Citizens is the second oldest Citizens Chapter (after TELCO), and is formed of eight local alliances building power for the common good south of the Thames. We believe in the capacity of ordinary people to come together and create meaningful change in their communities and beyond.
Our 100+ member institutions include schools, universities, churches, mosques, synagogues, migrant groups, charities, GP surgeries, and other community organisations.
Together, we organise to tackle injustice in our local communities.
Our local campaign areas currently include: affordable housing, youth safety, migrant rights, mental health, parenting, the climate crisis and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) provision.

South London Listens
The Covid-19 pandemic put an unprecedented strain on everyone’s mental health.
