About us

A local charity supporting people across Merton

We are a local charity helping to give people in Merton the support they need to improve their lives.  We are working towards a future where no one in Merton feels lonely, where people can live life to the fullest, and where everyone knows they can turn to us for a helping hand to get them back on their feet. Wimbledon Guild is more than just a place, it is a real community. 

As the needs of our local community change, we will be ready to meet new and emerging needs. Our services aim to:

  • Reduce social isolation and loneliness 
  • Help people who are experiencing difficulties 
  • Enable older people to be active and healthy 

Last year Wimbledon Guild worked with over 2,000 individuals from across the borough. 

  • We provide free independent and professional advice services from an experienced team.  
  • We aim to make our Talking Therapies services affordable and subsidise them, charging a sliding scale of charitable rates.  
  • Families are key clients for our Small Grants Programme.
  • The over 50s can be as active as they wish with our clubs and classes programme and our Home Food Cafe welcomes diners each weekday. 
  • Our befrienders make regular visits to local people who are virtually housebound. 
  • Our premises are used by 27 groups and over 270 volunteers currently take part in our volunteering programme.

Our Impact Reports for the last two years are available below:

We need your help...

Socially isolated people across Merton are depending on us for immediate and practical support with food deliveries, telephone befriending and much more. In what is a difficult time for everyone, help us support vulnerable people who are likely to feel the impact most.
