Keep your skills up, gain some work experience or maybe you want to give something back?
There are ample volunteering opportunities and something to suit everyone’s tastes, whether it’s having tea with a house bound older person to manning a candy floss machine!
Almost 250 talented volunteers are currently taking part in our flexible volunteering programme. Our volunteers come from every walk of life and range in age from 16 to over 80. Typical activities they get involved in include singing and helping out at our Social Centre; providing counselling for clients; serving customers at our charity shop; working at fundraising events including the Wimbledon Village Fair; supporting our office staff and becoming trustees.
Whatever time you can give, it will make a difference to someone’s life. Volunteering can be a rich and rewarding experience helping to deliver great services to people.
Maybe you are between jobs at the moment, or you’ve just retired or have a few hours to spare. Let us know what your interests are and we will look for something that works for you.
You might enjoy working in the Social Centre helping with activities or become a welcome visitor to residents at our nursing home. Perhaps you would enjoy working in our charity shop, or helping at a fundraising event? We can often use good administration skills, IT, marketing and creative skills in our offices too. There are lots of options available.
Last year the Wimbledon Guild achieved the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard, a “celebration and recognition of good practice in volunteer management”.

Got a couple of hours a week to spare? Your regular visit to someone who is on their own and perhaps unable to go out, could make a huge difference to their life. When a person doesn’t have many visitors it is good for them to have the chance to talk to someone. Maybe they will tell you about their childhood, the work they did or perhaps their children and grandchildren who they don’t get to see very often. You will receive full training and be CRB-checked.
