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.  At the moment all courses are held online via Zoom. The date of the next course will be on Monday 17/01/2022  12:00pm  - 1:30pm.

To book your place on a course, simply send an email to WAES
