West London Citizens

Ealing Citizens is a Borough alliance of Citizens UK in West London. Its aim is to bring different civic society organisations together to organise and act for the common good. 

Who we are

Like all Citizens chapters, we build power by uniting people around common issues or concerns.

Our alliance is made up of dues-paying institutions from a range of faith, school and community organisations. Our current members are: Christ the Saviour, St Barnabas Church Pitshanger, St Anslem’s Southall, St Martin’s Acton, St Mary’s Acton, William Perkin High School, Northolt High School and Acton Mosque. Our work is supported by Daniel Mackintosh, a Citizens UK Community Organiser, daniel.mackintosh@citizensuk.org

Campaigning for local housing need – Housing Justice

Ealing CLT campaign sprung from a group of local people who wanted more safe, warm, affordable homes in Ealing – houses that would be truly affordable for people in the area.

Having listened to our communities we held a housing accountability assembly ahead of the May 2018 local elections. Over 200 of our members attended and we negotiated with the candidates for leader of Ealing Council.

Together we won the commitment for an Ealing Community Land Trust.  Since then, we’ve been working with Ealing Council and London CLT and have identified land to build 50 permanently affordable homes. We have since been working with Create Streets to help us plan and discuss people’s priorities for housing.

We are currently working on the next steps to develop the site; if you would like to get involved here, please get in touch via email cltealing@outlook.com  We would love to hear from you.

Coming Home

‘Coming Home’ is a report commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury in response to the housing crisis. It sets out vital actions for the Church, Government and other Stakeholders with a focus on building better communities and homes, not just houses.
