Wimbledon Guild is a community charity in Merton offering practical help and support so that people never have to face life’s challenges alone. 

Wimbledon Guild has recently been able to secure 5 years of funding to provide counselling for marginalised communities. As the Counsellor (Refugee Service) you will be providing up to 16 sessions to individuals over 18 that live, work or study in the London Borough of Merton and define as a Refugee.
