What we do

We distribute revenue income through grants to organisations and charities and small 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 we only have a few properties and new tenancies are rare.

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 83 residential units. Hiring out the Vestry Hall also generates funds.

If you need our support or are a local charity, please visit our grant or education support sections. Or else please call the RPLC team on 020 8948 5701 or use the relevant link on our contact page.
