CIL Matters Newsletter - April 2020 - Issue 24
We would like to start by sending best wishes to you all during this difficult and uncertain time. We would also like to thank you for your continued support of Merton CIL.
Following Government advice around coronavirus, we have had to make some temporary changes to how we operate. However, we are still open and doing our best to support Deaf and Disabled people in Merton. We are operating a reduced service but our advice and advocacy service is open to new benefits, community care and hate crime cases.
Craftivism and Chat has been cancelled but we are planning to host an extraordinary group via Zoom on 28th April 2020 from 1pm. You can read more about it in the newsletter.
The Coronavirus Act was passed and this is extremely worrying for Disabled people. We have lots of information on the Act and what it means in the newsletter.
The situation with coronavirus and its impact on our community is constantly changing. We are doing our very best to keep you updated. The health and well being of Disabled people, our members & supporters, service users, staff & volunteers is at the top of our agenda. Please do feel free to get in touch if you require any support or information and we will try our best to help.
There are challenging times ahead and now more than ever we need your support. Please help us to raise £1,000 to keep our important work going. We understand that not everyone can afford to donate so please share our posts on social media, get your friends and family to sign up as members and continue to support our work!
