These Forums, consisting of businesses, community groups and residents, help safeguard the unique, individual districts that make up the West End. As a BID, we bring together the voices of the business community and ensure that any planned activity or projects benefit the community as a whole.

Lord Mayor of Westminster's Charity

This year, The Right Worshipful Lord Mayor of Westminster Andrew Smith is supporting Westminster Befriend a Family (WBAF), a charity that supports families and young people across Westminster to identify and achieve their goals, making life-changing transformations that get them where they want to be.

WBAF has been supporting the community in Westminster for over 30 years, and now serves the neighbouring boroughs too. WBAF runs two key programmes: 

  • Broadening Horizons, a programme of mentoring for young people aged 10 – 25
  • Mentoring for Mums, for women with children aged 5+

For both programmes we train and supervise volunteer mentors who provide regular one to one support in person, over the phone and online.

Its programmes boost well-being, increase connectedness and enable people to flourish as their autonomy and confidence grows.
