Advice & Advocacy Service 


At Merton Centre for Independent Living we provide information, advice and advocacy support to 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
  • Community Care and Independent Living 
  • Health 
  • Or Hate Crime

The services are FREE and avaliable to 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 -
