About us

A local charity supporting people across Merton

We are a community charity in Merton providing a hand-up, not a hand-out. We want you to feel valued, respected and empowered to live life your way. Whether you need emotional, financial or practical support, you can turn to us for help getting back on track.  

Wimbledon Guild is more than just a place, it is a real community where everyone belongs. 

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 Café 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.

Or at least we can be, with your support. Will you help us make sure that no one in our community has to face life’s challenges alone?

Yes, I’ll give today
