Richmond Fellowship commenced in Richmond in 1959 when a nurse working in an institution decided to set up her own care facility for those with mental issues.

The Richmond Fellowship is a national charity and locally covers an area from Gosport to Alton and is supported by East Hampshire District Council.  In Petersfield the meetings take place in St Peters Hall, and are activity based which can include creative writing, arts & crafts, music and many more.

Individuals can self-refer, and need to be 18+ years, and problems are assessed as and when people arrive.  Leaders are mostly volunteers and includes parents and carers and are also over 18.  A drop-in may also be set up on the same day as the community meeting.

Live in skills are taught where accommodation is provided, and telephone support is also available.

All staff and volunteers are DBS checked, as well as OCN certificate training provided.

The Bordon Liphook Haslemere Charity is a unique organisation providing financial support to individuals and community groups within a strictly limited geographical area around the respective towns.

Since its inception in 1992, the charity has given grants which have amounted to over £1,000,000 primarily to families but also individuals. Community groups have regularly been supported, especially since the charity founded the Boltini Fund with the support of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Fund. In the Haslemere area, we support organisations in conjunction with the Challis fund.

The Trustees of the Charity meet monthly to determine the grants, whilst the Manager can quickly deal with smaller or more pressing needs. Help with food, furniture, electrical goods, and carpets are the most common grants given.

The money distributed by the Charity is raised from four charity shops, in Bordon, Liphook, Haslemere and Grayshott. The shops sell donations of goods, which provide funds for the Charity who then distribute them back to the community.
