Support Us

Would you like to help our local community? Then please consider supporting us in one of the following ways!

Why donate to WSF?

Many people in West Silvertown tell us that our activities and services make a real difference to their lives.

  • Regular giving really helps give our charity financial security. It’s quick and easy to set up a direct debit and claim Giftaid at the same time.
  • One-off gifts are also very welcome and much appreciated.

A donation of just:

  • £10 could cover one day’s expenses for a young person on work experience at our youth club summer scheme.
  • £20 could pay for breakfast for around 35 people at our Breakfast Club.
  • £30 could allow us to run one dance class for the community in our hall.

Thank you for your donation. No gift is too small and it will help us to build a stronger community!


Why volunteer for WSF?

We rely on volunteers to help us run the wide range of activities and services that we do. But we know that volunteering is about more than giving your time for free. It’s about helping your community while gaining new skills, making new friends – and hopefully having lots of fun too.

We’re currently looking for more volunteers in these areas:

Under 5s programme - Do you enjoy working with young children? We have a group every weekday morning, and need help with setting up, packing down and interacting with children and families. Email emaily@wsfroyaldocks.org

Community breakfast - Are you a friendly and welcoming person? We need help setting up and creating a welcoming environment at our community breakfasts, on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Email emily@wsfroyaldocks.org

Family projects - Are you good at engaging children and adults? We run family sessions with games, crafts and stories every day after school.  We need help with set up and delivery of all our family sessions. Email emily@wsfroyaldocks.org

Youth club - could you support our youth club for ages 8-19 on a Monday or Thursday evening? Or our preteen club for 8-13s on a Wednesday? To find out more, speak to chris@wsfroyaldocks.org

Trustees - WSF is overseen by an experienced board of trustees who come from a wide range of backgrounds. We’re currently seeking new board members with specific experience in property or facilities management. If this sounds like you, please email david@wsfroyaldocks.org

If you’d like to volunteer with us, but these opportunities don't sound like the right fit for you, email emily@wsfroyaldocks.org to see if we can match your skills with our needs.

Why fundraise for WSF?

Do you fancy yourself as a Mo Farah or a Mary Berry? Then why not consider fundraising for WSF and give something back to the local community while doing something you enjoy?

There are many ways you can fundraise, from running a 10k race to hosting a cake sale. You just need to decide what’s right for you and get in touch with us at helen@wsfroyaldocks.org to tell us what you’re doing.

We’ll try to help you promote your fundraising activity, and you can be sure that your money will be put to excellent use for the community here in West Silvertown!

Could your business or organisation partner with us?

Are you a company or other local organisation interested in making a donation? Or could we develop a bespoke sponsorship to support your company values and people development goals?

We welcome people who could give time to our youth club – whether by giving inspirational talks to young people, career and interview workshops, or advice on how to manage money.

And we’re always delighted to host teams looking for a useful way to spend a volunteering or teambuilding day.

At WSF, we love bright ideas! If this sounds like you, please get in touch with us manager@wsfroyaldocks.org to discuss potential ways of working together.
