RPLC - SUPPORTING RICHMOND
RPLC will continue to do all it can to support people in need in Richmond and the organisations that help them. During these uncertain times the RPLC office team will be working remotely. Please continue to communicate with your usual contact at RPLC.
It is likely that many organisations will have additional demands on their already stretched services and that some tenants or leaseholders will find their employment or business circumstances will have changed. RPLC will be understanding, flexible and supportive in responding to them. Communication is important. We want to help.
Suppliers' Invoices: Please arrange for invoices to be sent to Finance @ rplc . org . uk
What we do
We distribute revenue income through grants to organisations and charities and Crisis grants to those in extreme need. We also provide an education support programme and offer charitable housing at a number of properties to people living or working in Richmond. The waiting lists are closed. Please note that new tenancies are rare. If you live in our Benefit Area (TW9, TW10, SW13, SW14) and wish to apply for housing (when the lists are open) please use go to the Property section of the website.
Income is generated though the endowment fund investments managed by Sarasin & Partners, with rental income from letting office suites at Vestry House, Workshops at Dickson House and 84 residential units. Hiring out the Vestry Hall also generates funds.
Where We Help
Our Benefit Area covers Richmond, Ham, Sheen, Mortlake and Barnes (the TW9, TW10, SW14 and SW13 postcode areas).

RPLC offers support to frontline charities affected by C-19 to help them with the move to remote working and direct support of vulnerable people locally. Funding will be reviewed on a monthly basis as RPLC will also consider how best to support charities later in the year when 'lockdown' is ended and many organisations are expected to be impacted by reduced income and increased demands on their services.
