Volunteer with us
Volunteer with Wimbledon Guild and you'll get so much in return
Wimbledon Guild is a community charity offering practical help and personal support, so people in Merton never have to face life’s challenges alone. Whether money’s tight, someone is feeling low or overwhelmed, or they’re looking for new friends and activities locally, we’re always here.
We help and support more than 2,000 people across our borough every year through our innovative services, which we continue to develop in response to changing needs.
Our volunteers play an essential part in helping us deliver our services and connect with the local community. Whether it’s visiting someone who is housebound, hosting an art or music class, preparing lunch in our Homefood Café, planting vegetables in our Community garden or running the London Marathon, we couldn’t do it without our amazing team of volunteers!
Volunteering your time can make a real difference to your own and someone else’s wellbeing. It can help you make new friends, keep active or enjoy a hobby away from work or a busy lifestyle. For others, volunteering provides an opportunity to gain new experiences, learn new things, and pick up transferrable skills that can benefit your career.
Let's find the right role for you
Depending on your interest and availability, our Volunteer Programme team can recommend the right volunteer role for you. You can see our latest volunteering opportunities above, read through what’s involved and you can apply using our online application form. We look forward to hearing from you!
How we can support you
To make sure that our volunteers feel supported in their role, we ask everyone to attend an induction and role-specific training, which might take place in-person, online or through e-modules. You will have the full support of Wimbledon Guild staff members and we will always check with you to see how things are going. We also like to send our volunteer’s monthly newsletters, invites to volunteer socials and catch-ups.
We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and communities, and we believe that having a physical or learning disability shouldn’t prevent anyone from volunteering. We want to know how we can best support you while you volunteer with us, so if you would like to speak to a member of the team, you’d prefer a hardcopy application, or would like help to fill out the form, please call 020 8946 0735 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
