Advice & Advocacy Service 

 

At Merton Centre for Independent Living we provide information, advice and advocacy support to Deaf and Disabled People on a wide range of issues. These issues must relate to:

  • Benefits (applications, tribunals, medical assessments etc)
  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Debt and Low Income (we do not cover consumer credit debt)
  • Community Care and Independent Living 
  • Health 
  • Or Hate Crime

The services are FREE and avaliable to Deaf and Disabled residents of The London Borough of Merton. If you live outside of Merton we can usually put you in touch with another organisation that can help. You can also see our useful information page which lists other advice organisations - https://www.mertoncil.org.uk/useful-information/chapter-1-advice-advocacy-an/
