Wimblecomm Connect, our program of monthly networking Zoom sessions for Wimbledon Community Association members, was first established during the Covid-19 pandemic. Sessions aim to provide an informal platform where you can meet the Team at Wimblecomm, network with other community groups/venues, access support, share stories, and learn together.
Additionally, we offer a program of webinars/workshops which address a range of themes, including Green Merton, Diversity and Inclusion, Mental Wellbeing, and Social Media/Digital Marketing for small charities and community organisations. The first session in our Winter 2021/22 program will be ‘Making your Stories Count’, an interactive webinar delivered by Superhighways at our upcoming AGM on Wednesday 10 November 2021.
Wimblecomm Connect sessions and webinars are aimed at members of Wimbledon Community Association and are still free.

Connect in December
The next Connect session will take place on 1 December from 12:30pm to 13:45pm, on Zoom. Please see the attached flyer for information on how to register and join us on the day.
Merton Uplift, one of our Community Organisation members, will introduce their service. This will be followed by a presenter-led discussion on common mental wellbeing needs in our communities and what we can all do to raise awareness and spread the word about available support in the borough.
We all go through low points at times in our lives, or we are worried about someone close to us who is struggling with their mental health. It is not unusual to experience symptoms related to stress, anxiety and depression. Knowing what help is available and how to access it can make a huge difference to the person affected.
We will explore the different ways how Merton Uplift supports people’s mental health and wellbeing needs, and how to access their services including measures to deliver these safely during the Covid pandemic.
Merton Uplift is an integrated Primary Care Mental Health service accessible to anyone living in the borough of Merton or registered with a Merton GP who are 18 years and over. They support anyone who has a mental health or wellbeing need, whether this is due to emotional difficulties or life stressors.
We look forward to Connecting with You soon!
