Merton CIL is run and controlled by Deaf and Disabled People for Deaf and Disabled People. We provide advice and advocacy support to Deaf and Disabled People in Merton in the following areas: debt and low income, benefits, health, independent living, community care and housing.

People First is a national organisation run and led by people with learning difficulties. We aim to raise awareness of the rights of people with learning difficulties, develop the skill base of self-advocacy groups and individuals, and make sure that their voices are heard at government policy level.
Ruils is a user-led charity based in the London Borough of Richmond. We work with the elderly, adults and children with disabilities and long term health and mental health conditions to help them stay independent and connected to their community. We offer advice, advocacy and practical support to enable individuals to have choice and control over the support that they need to live the life of their choice.
