Westminster Connects Update
4 May 2021
In February, we put a call out for volunteers to take part in Westminster Connects, which was set up by Westminster City Council to support those who are vulnerable and lonely through friendly, weekly phone calls. We had a fantastic response to this and wanted to say thank you to Knight Frank, where several employees have now undergone training and are now making calls to vulnerable people in the borough, with more employees undergoing training too.
Westminster Connects has been running throughout the pandemic and is one of many schemes set up in the Marylebone and Westminster area to support our local community throughout coronavirus. With the help of volunteers, community groups and businesses, Westminster Connects has supported more than 25,000 residents, and continues to reach out and offer support to those who are vulnerable.
If you or your colleagues are interested in supporting our Quarter community, you can get involved with our Smarter Giving scheme virtually or in person. Take a look through the available opportunities here.
