Answered By: 
The Mayor

Volunteering is one of my key priorities. Through Team London I am encouraging and supporting Londoners to engage in a range of volunteering opportunities across the capital.

One such programme, Well London, is building and strengthening the foundations of good health and wellbeing in communities by significantly increasing community participation and volunteering in health and wellbeing enhancing activities through a range of community engagement and development processes.
