Choice, Control and Independent Living
Merton CIL has reviewed the current position of adult social care in the borough. We are bringing together a panel of speakers who will reflect on best practice locally and nationally, which can be built on to support Deaf and Disabled People to live independent lives. Following on from our AGM on 25th October, we will be hosting this panel event to discuss the future of social care.
