We are a local network of volunteers formed in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Our aim is to help those in our communities in need of support – including providing food parcels, household goods, furniture and appliances but also laptops through our Keep Kids Connected campaign for children facing digital poverty.
We have grown exponentially in Merton, Wandsworth and Kingston thanks to our brilliant volunteers and can do attitude. We are now working to also promote access to sports, essential life skills coaching and mentoring, initiatives to improve local environments, enrich lives and strengthen our community. We are here to stay.
The Dons Local Action are nothing short of amazing! Practical, entrepreneurial and inspirational. I love them.

Help us build our 5 key areas of support
we will work with charities and other organisations to tackle food poverty and make sure that no-one goes hungry.
Environment and Surroundings
we will organise ‘community clear-ups’, improve communal spaces, and help people improve their own homes and environments.
Mentoring, Education and Coaching
we will provide young people with key life skills, and mentoring to help them into employment, and to be active participants in their communities.
in partnership with the AFC Wimbledon Foundation we will introduce young people to sport for their health and well-being as well as the personal and social skills that playing sport brings.
we will respond to need in a nimble and practical way and continue to be life-enhancing for both our volunteers and the people we support.
This is why we started this incredible journey!
We are all volunteers at Dons Local Action group and we need your help.
