About Richmond Fellowship

Richmond Fellowship is a national mental health charity. We’ve been working with individuals, families and communities to make recovery reality for over 60 years.

More importantly, our services work hand-in-hand with people we support to give them the confidence and self belief that they have an important contribution to make in society.

By working closely with the people we support, we’ve developed a range of services that can make a positive difference to their lives.

Since 1959, we’ve provided support to thousands of people across the country to help them manage the day to day impacts of living with mental ill health.

We offer a range of services across England including supported housing, community, crisis houses, residential homes, employment support and social enterprises.

We have a simple mission, approach and set of values that guide us in everything we do:

Our Mission

  • Making Recovery Reality.

Our Values

  • Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
  • Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
  • Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
  • Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.

Our Recovery Focussed Approach

We help people to:

  • Actively take part in decisions about their support
  • Give them ownership and control around the support they receive
  • Take part in activities they value, including mainstream community activities
  • Live in accommodation that promotes their independence and recovery
  • Benefit from the type of support they are receiving – be it practical, emotional, social,
    personal, cultural or spiritual
  • Achieve new levels of self confidence and independence.
