Want to Volunteer In Westminster?

How to volunteer

Westminster volunteering is organised via Westminster Connects, which is run by Westminster City Council. Volunteers who sign up with Westminster Connects receive a fortnightly email newsletter that includes a wide range of the latest volunteering roles in the borough. 

If you are interested in volunteering through Westminster Connects, please sign up here.

We at the Volunteer Centre can help you - if you live, work or study in Westminster - to find your ideal volunteering role with Westminster voluntary organisations and community groups. If you need support relating to any aspect of volunteering, please email us and we'll do everything we can to assist you.

Introduction To Volunteering Course

Westminster Adult Education Service (WAES) offers a free half-day course to help you understand the basic principles of volunteering and some of the practices underlying working as a volunteer. The next workshop will be held in person only at Grand Junction on Wednesday  17th April & Wednesday 3rd July between 10:30am -12:00pm . If you'd like to book a place, please email us .


We are pleased to confirm that our fortnightly volunteer drop-in session at One Westminster have resumed on Thursday between 1pm to 3pm - same time, every fortnight - at The Stowe Centre, 258 Harrow Road, Paddington, London W2 5ES.

There's no need to make an appointment - simply turn up at the office for one-to-one support to help you find your ideal volunteering role with Westminster voluntary organisations and community groups.
