If you can’t get to Wimbledon Guild, we’ll come to you
Befriending is about community and connection.
Nearly all of us have felt lonely at some point in our lives, and it can be hard to start up conversations with people you meet out and about.
If you can’t get to the Wimbledon Guild, we’ll work to connect you with one of our wonderful Volunteer Befrienders.
Volunteer befrienders typically spend an hour every week visiting their client at their home. Other volunteers meet clients out in the community, and others offer support over the phone.
Who we can help
We can match you with a Wimbledon Guild Volunteer Befriender if you:
- Live in Merton
- Are housebound and/or
- Live alone and/or
- Are recently bereaved and/or
- Have been diagnosed with a long-term health condition
Become a volunteer Befriender

More people than ever are asking for our help so please get in touch – there’s always someone waiting for your visit, meet-up or call!
We’ll be here to support you and will keep in touch regularly to see how you’re getting on.
