Community Care Information Open Day

Merton Council is holding a Community Care Information Open Day for residents.

The aim of the day is to provide up to the date information to residents about the services on offer and how they can be accessed.

Councillor Maxi Martin, Cabinet Member for Care Services, said: “This will be a great event and I hope as many people as possible can attend.

“The day will really be helpful to people and they will be able to find out in depth information about services they, or their relatives, need in a friendly environment. I hope to see people there.”
