If you are interested in volunteering with the London Welcome Project please contact us by email and include your CV and a short description of why you would like to get involved. During the sessions volunteers help set up the centre, prepare food in the kitchen, take part in social activities and assist with the bike project.
At the moment we are currently looking for volunteer cooks to cook a healthy meal for guests, volunteers for the bike workshop and volunteers who would like to run activities for kids. We also welcome ideas, suggestions and proposals for lectures, workshops, debates and social events.
LWP relies on food donations collected from local businesses on Fridays and Saturdays. If you have transport and are able to help with the collections or would like to donate food please get in touch.

Our bike project enables people to be mobile in the city. Without little or no income, London can be an isolating place, and one that is difficult to travel in. We are very grateful for any bike parts, tools or second-hand bikes, which we refurbish and give out along with a lock and lights to anyone who needs one.
We also accept books, toys, games and any other resources for making the sessions engaging for all ages.
If you’d like to donate things, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
