Team Westminster is Westminster City Council's flagship volunteering programme. There are many ways to volunteer with us, and three different programmes available. Join as many of the programmes as you like, and get involved as much or as little as you want!
View our available volunteering opportunities or read more about our programmes below.
Follow us on Twitter for live updates on volunteering opportunities, training and events in your area.
If you’re interested in sport (on the field or behind the scenes), Team Westminster Active can help you find a voluntary role with a sports club or physical activity group. Develop your skills, support sporting activity and have fun while you're doing it!
Volunteer in the heart of London at some of the capital’s most exciting events with the Team Westminster Ambassadors. West End LIVE!, the London Marathon and the Trooping of the Colour are just some of the opportunities available.
If you're strapped for time but want to make a difference in your local area, Social Action's one-off no-strings volunteering is ideal for you! Join Team Westminster Social Action for one-off volunteering opportunities like transforming your local park or organising a local street party.
Get involved in sports-related volunteering and play a key role in delivering or supporting sports sessions in Westminster. There are also lots of roles available helping with day-to-day activities without the need to participate in the sports themselves, including administration, finance, marketing and web development – perfect if you're looking for career experience. You can find out about some of the opportunities available by signing up to our fortnightly newsletter. (We won't share your details with anyone and you can unsubscribe at any time.)
You can talk to us face-to-face at one of our drop-ins. A drop-in is a chance for you to talk to us in person about any questions you have surrounding volunteering. There's no obligation, and it's entirely free.
Our drop-ins take place alternate Wednesdays starting from 27 June at Pimlico Centre, Lupus Street, SW1V 3AT. Come along any time between 3.30pm and 6pm or get a reminder by booking a slot here.
Team Westminster Active can support your sports or physical activity organisations and events to find volunteers. We can also provide training to help you manage, retain and develop your volunteers.
We can also support organisations in other ways, including:
You can also attend an organisation support surgery to meet with our Coordinator to talk to us about any of your volunteering needs or to find out how we can support you. Surgeries take place every alternate Thursday at Westminster Sports Unit, Paddington Recreation Ground, Randolph Avenue, Maida Vale W9 1PD. It is essential that you book on Eventbrite.
Join our friendly group of volunteers, the Team Westminster Ambassadors, who provide event and local information to members of the public at high profile events throughout Westminster. The Ambassadors act as on-the-ground eyes and ears, while being a friendly face to welcome visitors and occasionally lending a helping hand at large sporting, cultural and ceremonial events, as well as small-scale charity and community gatherings or walks. Meet people from all walks of life and showcase the best of the city, while having fun and making a valuable contribution to your community.
