In the past 2 years we have asked local disabled people to tell us what is important to you.
You said: Make our services more available. So in 2015 we doubled the number of people we can support
You said: Support the voice of disabled people through consultations. In the last year we worked hard with the council to improve how local disabled people are consulted with. This year, Merton Council has promised to consult earlier with disabled people in a more accessible way, and with more information.
You said: Address Hate Crime. In 2015 we will be researching disability hate crime in Merton and working to support victims of hate crime
You said: Improve accountability and support from statutory services. In the last year we have worked with Circle Housing to improve their customer service and understanding of disabled people's issues. We are still working on this.
