Community Partnership - is a partnership of organisations working together to maximise the health and well-being of adults in Richmond, Kew, Ham and Petersham. The Community Partnership has been commissioned by Adult and Community Services, London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to deliver the Community Independent Living Service (CILS).
Their aim is to provide services to help people to live as independently as possible within the community. We do this through advice and information, health and wellbeing activities, support groups, befriending, social activities, education and training, employment and volunteering opportunities. We are in partnership and collaboration with a group of charities in our part of Richmond upon Thames borough.
