Description of activity
Richmond AID is a charity run by and for disabled people in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and surrounding areas.
We support disabled people, families, carers and professionals by providing services such as an Advice Service, Richmond SPADE (our gardening service), A Benefits Service and support with employment and training. We also provide the Independent Support Partnership http://www.afclocaloffer.org.uk/organisations/7766-independent-support-partnership-isp?term=independent+support+partnership and a Travel Buddies Scheme http://www.afclocaloffer.org.uk/organisations/8395-travel-buddyup-across-richmond-and-hounslow?term=Buddies
We support people of all ages with all kinds of disabilities, including physical and sensory impairments, mental health issues and learning difficulties. Our aim is to support disabled people to live independent lives and to have the same opportunities as non-disabled people.
We work with many organisations to meet the needs of disabled people and are keen to continue to develop successful partnerships.
