oneRichmond has been established by Hampton Fund and Richmond Parish Lands Charity, two local grant-making charities with a long history and grassroots knowledge of the local community. It’s in response to independent research carried out by Rocket Science on the needs in our borough, commissioned by the two charities. The report found that the perception of Richmond as a wealthy borough masks high levels of deprivation (Rocket Science: On The Edge). We will work with other community stakeholders to:
- Unlock additional significant resources to tackle hardship across the Borough
- Improve opportunities and change lives
- Create a borough in which everyone can thrive
Resources might be expertise, time, use of facilities and funds. We believe that everyone can give – those who live, work and learn in the Borough. Together we can achieve more.
