Befriending

If you, or someone you know, is lonely, housebound or has lost the confidence to mix with others, our Volunteer Befrienders can help.

Our Volunteer Befrienders can provide a listening ear and companionship and can make a real difference. Being a part of our Wimbledon Guild Befriending Programme helps people to stay connected, particularly during these strange times!

Many Volunteer Befrienders have developed long-lasting connections with their friend, and both look forward to their weekly calls.   

Please be aware that because of current COVID-19 restrictions, Befriending may take place over the phone or by email until our Volunteers can start making home visits again.

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.
