Skills and Training Programme

The programme is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Westminster, however we aim to prioritise staff and volunteers of an ActiveWestminster Mark accredited organisation and those individuals who face considerable cultural and socio-economic barriers to personal and professional development.
