SW Connects

SW Connects is an innovative pilot partnership, between Wellington Barracks, Westminster City Council, The Abbey Centre, Westminster Adult Education Service (WAES) and other local voluntary sector organizations to support a closer relationship between the Armed Forces families and the surrounding community in Westminster.

During 2015, there will be a wide range of participatory events and activities, training courses and volunteering opportunities for adults, families and children in South Westminster. 

Focused participatory activities

  • adult learning courses for army families and local residents.
  • sports activities to help both families and service personnel to integrate with people living and working around the barracks
  • creative project based at the Abbey Centre where Wellington Barracks families can meet and interact with local residents
  • a photography project with Armed Forces families and local residents
