W11 Volunteering

Our volunteering scheme is a cost-free way to take up a new hobby and socialise, all whilst contributing to your LancWest community.
As a volunteer you could learn about gardening and help to deliver our plans to make the Estate green. Or why not help your Residents’ Association with running community events of all kinds? 
You can volunteer as much or as little of your time as suits you – weekly, monthly, or just pop along occasionally.
