How we help
The Vineyard Community is home to a number of initiatives, all geared towards helping the people of Richmond.
Due to Covid -19 restrictions all gathered activities are suspended and we are operating a borough-wide delivery service for the richmond foodbank. For inquiry call: 07516935655
Anyone can drop into our community centre looking for food, clothing and help with shelter. Some people stay a couple of days, others continue to visit on a semi-permanent basis. Our aim is to get people back on their feet as quickly as possible and provide them with a continuing and caring supportive family.
Café and charity shop
Our café is for everyone in Richmond and our team serves up delicious weekday food and drink from lunch to late afternoon, including a full selection of espresso coffees and afternoon tea and cake, indoors or in our sunny garden. We also run local charity shops that are packed with inexpensive donations provided by the local community. All proceeds from both enterprises support the charity.
Our shops on Paradise Road and at The Vineyard Community Centre are due to reopen from April 12th 2021, and our cafe will also begin outdoor service.
Our nurses are qualified professionals who follow the Parish Nursing Model. They can help with a wide range of basic health issues and refer you to GPs or other NHS services.
