Credit voucher from Westminster Time Credits



We’re delighted to have joined forces with Westminster Time Credits, supported by the Spice organisation, to offer rewards to our volunteers.

Now, if you give an hour of time to your community you get an hour’s credit back to spend on a host of activities across the capital and the rest of the UK.

They include culture and history, exhibitions; UK family days out; room hire; classes; sport, including sailing, climbing and wrestling; trips and events; health and well being; beauty and much more.

Time Credits never expire and there are lots of ways to earn them. You can even give them away to someone else.

The scheme is new to Westminster although it has been operating in other parts of London and the UK for some time.

WBAF new volunteers can pick up a brochure explaining the scheme from our office in Victoria at 34 Buckingham Palace Road, SW1 0RE. Current volunteers can pick them up at their monthly training meeting.

Join us as a trustee

Westminster Befriend a Family is seeking new trustees to support us as we continually develop the reach and impact of our services. 

We are looking for motivated and committed trustees to expand our current board and work with the Chief Executive to create and guide our strategy for development.

Team working, commitment and good communication skills are vital for the successful functioning of the board. We also welcome individuals with additional skills or experience in:

  • Chairing committees
  • Strategic leadership
  • HR
  • Law
  • Marketing
  • Social media
  • Fundraising

WBAF works throughout the borough of Westminster to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families by offering opportunities for learning and development and supporting them to improve their living conditions and physical and mental health.

Our volunteers provide family support services to a diverse range of families each year. We support families with children from birth to 18 who have multiple and complex needs. We also provide a wide variety of supplementary services including: advice surgeries; children’s swimming and weekly martial lessons; coffee morning/life coaching sessions for parents; and family outings.

WBAF is committed to equality and diversity and we encourage expressions of interest from all communities and backgrounds, particularly Westminster residents. Interested individuals must be available to attend and contribute to board meetings every four to six weeks. In addition, trustees may sit on sub-committees and attend occasional events with staff and service users.
