At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, local people and groups asked us how they could help in their communities. In response, we set up Westminster Connects to co-ordinate volunteers with Westminster residents that need help. We are as always humbled by the amazing community spirit of Westminster’s residents and their willingness to help others. Westminster Connects is continuing to support vulnerable residents as well as charities who are grateful for all the support they get through volunteers.
