Merton CIL is a disabled people’s user-led organisation. This means that at least 75% of our board are disabled people. We promote the inclusion, choice, and independence of disabled people in Merton. We were established to provide a voice for disabled people in the borough and to provide support to disabled people in all areas of their lives. As part of our ongoing strengths building as an organisation, we are looking for some outstanding candidates to join our dedicated board of trustees. We will be hosting a party with a twist, where you will get to meet staff and current trustees. If you think you might be interested, come along and find out more, we would love to meet you!

Date: Thursday 14th July 2016 Time: 6.30pm to 8pm Venue: to be confirmed

We are looking for someone who can actively contribute their views, brings lived experience to the trustee role, and is able to question and challenge the organisation and always work in the best interests of Merton CIL. We will particularly value the following experience:

We can offer training in disability equality, the support of your colleagues on the board, and we will work with you to identify any access needs that we can support you with.
