In 2019 Westminster Befriend a Family (WBAF) celebrates 30 years as a charity that has provided mentoring and befriending services to local, under privileged, mostly single parent families in the Borough of Westminster.  We wanted to use this year to celebrate the diversity, cultural and material, of the lives that are lived in this area and to raise awareness among local residents and businesses of the work we do.  We also want to encourage and enable our community to tell Westminster stories through the medium of photography.



Westminster Befriend a Family presents…
Uncover Westminster: A Photography Exhibition

We are grateful and humbled by three decades of service to vulnerable and disadvantaged families in Westminster. To celebrate the occasion together with the communities we serve, we will be holding a touring photography exhibition. In the spirit of “Uncover Westminster”, we are inviting you to submit your photography inspired by two themes:

  • A day in the Life
  • Borough of Contrasts

Landscapes, portraits, personal documentary… From spontaneous street moments to organized set-ups, we want you to show us your unique vision of this multifaceted borough we call home.

Share your photos from across the borough for a chance to be featured in our touring exhibition.
