Deaf and disabled residents are being encouraged to have their say at a new event.

Merton Centre for Independent Living is a local charity run by disabled people for disabled people, and has announced 'My Voice Matters, Listen to My Demands' will take place on November 19.

As well as sharing experiences and talking about the change they want to see in Merton, the charity is inviting local partners, businesses and organisations to join the debate with councillors Linda Kirby, Debbie Shears and Karin Forbes.

The event takes place at Morden Assembly Hall between 10.30am and 4pm with lunch provided.
