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 will cover one day’s expenses for a young person on work experience at our youth club summer scheme.
  • £20 will pay for breakfast for around 35 people at our Breakfast Club.
  • £30 will 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:

  • Youth Club

Could you support our youth club for ages 8-19 on a Monday or Thursday evening? We're looking for volunteers to help set up activities, interact with young people, and support with admin. If you'd like to find out more, contact Chris by emailing chris@wsfroyaldocks.org

We’re currently looking for new volunteers to help with general support at our toddler groups on Tuesday and Friday mornings. If you’d like to know more about becoming a volunteer on this programme, please contact Sarah by email at bridgescommunityproject@gmail.com

This free, Saturday morning 5k timed race is organised by volunteers. We’re currently looking for additional volunteers to help us with marshalling and at the finish line.  If you think you can help, please email us at victoriadock@parkrun.com

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 peter@wsfroyaldocks.org

If you’d like to volunteer but these opportunities aren't quite right for you, email us at manager@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.
