Local Know-How

This section provides information about local resources for voluntary and community organisations - from suggested suppliers and meeting rooms, to facts and figures about local communities, and channels for influence and publicity.

Looking for meeting space?  Our community space directory lists meeting rooms and community halls for hire in Westminster.  And if you're looking for a local caterer, printer or other suppliers for the voluntary sector, take a look at our suggested suppliers listings.

Providing funders with evidence of need can be time-consuming, even if you know where to look for the information.  We've put together a listing of useful online resources on community need, providing up to date statistics on health needs, demographics and other factors affecting Westminster communities.

We’ve also created a summary of some of the main strategies underlying commissioning and procurement in Westminster, and offered some advice on channels your organisation can use to influence decision-making.

Need to publicise an event?  We’ve listed contacts for local newspapers, with details of how to submit a press release.
