Merton Centre for Independent Living (Merton CIL) is seeking a new Treasurer with expertise in Finance to join our Board of Trustees, currently made up of ten members, eight identifying as Deaf or Disabled.

We want you to actively contribute your financial skills, your views, and question & challenge our management. We particularly welcome applicants who can bring lived experience of disability.

Merton CIL is an organisation run and controlled by Deaf and Disabled people for Deaf and Disabled People. Our vision is to enable Deaf and Disabled people to take control over their lives, challenge discrimination, achieve change locally, and have full participation in Merton and wider society. More information can be found on our website: www.mertoncil.org.uk

Merton CIL provides advice and advocacy support around benefits, community care and hate crime. Last year, we delivered over 1300 sessions of support, contributing £814,045 to the local economy through our work, and spent over 1000 hours working on policy and strategy issues on behalf of Deaf and Disabled People. We also lead a pan-London consortium providing capacity building support to Deaf and Disabled People’s organisations to develop their hate crime services.

We can offer training in disability equality, the support of your colleagues on the board, and support with any access needs.
