Merton CIL (Centre for Independent Living) AGM 25 October 2018

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.

Our full report is now available below, and an easy read summery below that.
