We are Merton Centre for Independent Living (also know as Merton CIL). We are the only user-led pan-disability Deaf and Disabled people’s organisation based in the London Borough of Merton. Our organisation works hard to address the marginalisation of Deaf and Disabled people and make a real difference in Merton and the wider community.
Our steering group was set up in 2008, we were incorporated as a company by limited guarantee in 2011 and became a registered charity in 2013. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved alongside local Deaf and Disabled People over the past 12 years. With cuts to funding within the voluntary sector, we are the only organisation within an area of high need providing advice and advocacy specialising in disability.
We are run and controlled by and for Deaf and Disabled people. We provide a range of free, accessible and supportive services for Deaf and Disabled people in Merton.
We want a society where Deaf and Disabled people can take control over their lives and achieve full participation.
Let's increase independence & inclusion for Deaf and Disabled people in Merton!
Help us to raise money to keep our important work providing accessible and person centred information and advice around benefits, low income, housing, social care, health and hate crime to local Deaf and Disabled people going. Your support will also help us to support more Disabled people.
