About the charity

Wimbledon Guild

Wimbledon Guild is a local charity supporting people in the London Borough of Merton. We aim to reduce social isolation & loneliness; support people experiencing difficulties in life; and enable older people to lead active and healthy lives.

Story

Wimbledon Guild helps people to turn their lives around by offering a comprehensive range of support services.

Demand for our welfare services increased by 13% last year with over 2,100 people turning to us for help in their time of need. Demand continues to grow as times get tougher and budgets are cut for many services across the London Borough of Merton.

Your kind donation will enable us to change more lives across our community.

HomeFood Cafe: loneliness increases the likelihood of mortality by 26%. In Merton 33% of people aged 65+ live alone. In 2017 we served over 7,000 meals in our friendly and welcoming HomeFood Cafe and 866 people took part in our social activities.

Emergency Grants: last year we distributed over £40,000 to 295 households in Merton to buy desperately needed items such as household appliances, school uniforms and mobility aids.

Befriending: nearly 150 people were supported by our befriending volunteers last year and we have a growing waiting list.

Thank you.
