#MyWestminster Day will be held on 1 July 2018. More details coming soon.

As part of the #MyWestminster programme, we are investing in community and voluntary groups across Westminster. 

We want to strengthen community identity by supporting projects which matter to residents.

#MyWestminster fund

We are providing up to £10,000 per organisation to support projects which will improve Westminster.

The fund is open to all voluntary organisations, resident, faith and community groups within Westminster. This includes schools and other establishments which care for Westminster residents (such as residential care homes). 

The focus of the fund is to: 

  • celebrate our neighbourhoods 
  • promote community cohesion across the city 
  • support people to make the best of their lives in the heart of London

#MyWestminster projects

The #MyWestminster projects will tackle issues relevant to communities in Westminster.

Housing standards task force

Our team of officers are tackling unlawful letting. This is so we can prosecute landlords breaking the 90 night limit on short-term letting. Our team will also tackle rogue landlords and support a new Considerate Landlords Charter. Read more.

Advice and support service 

Westminster City Council has created an advice service for the 30,000 EU nationals living in Westminster. This can be found on the Citizens Advice Westminster website.

Integrated street unit

Similar to our successful integrated gangs unit, we are working with our partners to support homeless people. We want to tackle anti-social behaviour issues, such as drug abuse.

The #MyWestminster club will support and challenge our young residents.

It will offer: 

  • work experience in high profile city institutions
