The Voluntary Fund is a charitable trust, independent from the Council, that has been set up to give the local community, on a voluntary basis, the opportunity to donate to local organisations who make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people in Richmond upon Thames.
Off The Record Twickenham is a registered charity (No. 1152097) that dramatically improves the lives of young people and their families and saves lives.
Off The Record provides the only free drop-in counselling, information and sexual health service for young people aged 11–24 living, working or studying in the borough of Richmond. With additional funding they will be able to improve their IT infrastructure and admin capability to be able to strengthen their online service. Feedback from young people overwhelmingly shows that after counselling they have dramatically improved wellbeing, they feel less lonely or isolated and experience less anxiety or panic.

– £55 could provide a crisis counselling session for a young person in need
– £500 could provide a young person with a full counselling programme with an experienced counsellor
