Merton COVID-19 Community Response Hub
The Merton COVID-19 Community Response Hub is a partnership between Age UK MertonMerton Voluntary Service Council and Wimbledon Guild. It was set up in March 2020 to help isolated households and those at risk from COVID-19.

Are you isolated, at risk from COVID-19 and need help with any of the following?

• Support with shopping and basic supplies
• Access to prescription and medication
• Telephone befriending
• Advice and practical help to stay active
• Support to stay independent at home

If you, or someone you know, needs help please email or call 020 8685 2272, between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.

How do I volunteer?
Volunteers will be allocated tasks to help isolated households and those at risk from COVID-19. If you would like to add your name to the volunteer waiting list please email

Note: If you feel unwell, do not volunteer to help others who are isolating. Please ensure you wash your hands regularly, especially before and after you deliver any items to a person in isolation and stay 2 meters away from the person where possible.
