How we are run

Chief Executive, Derek Caren

Richmond Fellowship is overseen by our Board of Directors which leads, directs, monitors and controls our activities.

They have wide-ranging backgrounds including working in frontline NHS and care services, having lived experience of our causes, and careers in the public, private and charitable sectors.

To ensure we continue putting the people we support at the heart of everything we do, the Board has a Working Together Committee which is a key part of our governance. It makes sure that co-production is embedded at all levels of our organisation and that individuals using our services have the opportunity to shape and influence our work.


Operationally, Richmond Fellowship is overseen at corporate level by our Director of Operations. Working directly alongside our Director of Operations we have two Heads of Operations, one in the North of England and one in the South of England.

At a local level, our Area Managers are at the heart of maintaining and building key partnerships and relationships with trusts and authorities which commission our services, while our Service Managers oversee the day to day running of our services.
