Merton CIL raise significant concerns over Council spending plans

Merton CIL have sent an in-depth response to Merton Council's 'Council Tax and Council Spending Consultation'. In summary, our findings are that disabled people in Merton are finding it extremely difficult to live independently due to cuts to Adult Social Care, particularly when combined with cuts in other areas of their lives too. Council plans for the year ahead, including further cuts, risk tipping disabled people into crisis. In addition, the consultation process has been divisive and undermines the relationship between disabled people and the Council.
