Wimbledon Guild have a small grants programme which provides financial assistance for eligible Merton residents, to help with items such as food, warm clothing, school uniform, utility bills, essential furniture and appliances in the home (such as a fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker etc). We know that in the current climate that families are struggling to provide essentials and we are grateful that the Guild continue to offer support via their small grants.
The application process involves completing an application form and for the applicant to have a telephone assessment, including sending proof of income (a bank statement), proof of ID and proof of being a resident in Merton. Provided all relevant paperwork is supplied by the applicant, the team aims to decide on applications within two weeks, and more quickly where the need is urgent.
