About us

Following the latest government advice around the Cononavirus, we have had to make some temporary changes to how we operate. Please see our Cononavirus response page for full details. 

We were founded in 1907 and our vision has remained the same since the beginning: we want people in Merton to lead happy and fulfilled lives.

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...

Following government advice, we have had to make some temporary changes to how we operate. However, we are still working hard to support the vulnerable across Merton during these difficult times. Now, more than ever, we need your help.
