Geographical remit: 


Richmond Fellowship have been in practice for more than 55 years, we have a simple mission, vision and set of values that guide us in everything we do.

Our Mission:

  • Making recovery reality

Our Vision:

  • We work towards a society that values everyone with mental health problems.

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.


The people we support are central to everything we do. We believe that each person is unique, and should have the opportunity to take control over their life, and to develop new meanings and purposes. We concentrate on the person and their individual needs, choices and aspirations, rather than on diagnostic categories or labels.

Peers, experts by experience, provide a valuable element of support through their own mental health recovery stories, and the empathy, encouragement and inspiration these provide those using our services.

 We take a recovery focused approach in supporting people to:

  • actively take part in decisions about their support and have as much control over this support as possible
  • 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
