RPLC - SUPPORTING RICHMOND
What we do
We distribute revenue income through grants to organisations, winter fuel payments to pensioners on benefits 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 apart from the Sheltered and 3-bed Lists. 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.
