Merton CIL News

We are seeking a passionate, committed Deaf or Disabled person to join Merton Centre for Independent Living as a Trainee Caseworker. People who live with a long-term health condition who may not consider themselves as Disabled are invited to apply. Merton Centre for Independent Living is a values-based, user-led charity which supports Deaf and Disabled People in the London Borough of Merton to live independently, challenge discrimination and achieve change locally.

Merton CIL has responded to Merton Council’s draft new planning framework with a call for more plans to maintain and develop disability access. The New Local Plan will set out the Council’s planning framework for the next 10 years with strategies for new housing, economic growth and development and addressing climate change.

Merton CIL will close for the holiday season on Thursday 24th Dec 2020 at 3pm. We will reopen on Monday 4th Jan 2021 from 9am. While we are closed you can still contact us via email or leave us a voice mail if you need support and we will get back to you when we open. If it is urgent please try and contact one of the organisations who are proving support over the holiday season mentioned below.
