Welcome to One Westminster

One Westminster is a registered charity whose vision is “A community where all lead fulfilling and self-sufficient lives.”

Westminster is a wonderful diverse and creative London borough.  Its strength is its people. One Westminster understands the incredible and unique role that voluntary sector organisations and volunteering play in ensuring that those with the greatest needs in our city are supported and enabled to play their full part, have their voices heard and reach their full potential.

We are an organisation with a wide network of contacts and partnerships across the voluntary, statutory and private sectors as well as a range of funders and we are totally committed to partnership working and to the development of strategic alliances.

Individual volunteers and local voluntary and community organisations can access a wide range of support from One Westminster.
