Richmond Aid Advice and Information on Disability

Richmond AID is a Teddington-based charity and we are celebrating 30 years this November. For more information or to get involved in birthday celebrations, email or call 020 8831 6411.

Set up by and for people with additional needs, Richmond AID has been providing support to the local disabled community since 1988. Whether you need housing/health/social care advice, help with benefits matters, support with getting back to work or just want an opportunity to meet new friends, there is likely to be a service at this friendly Teddington based charity that can help you or someone you know.
• Need help with keeping on top of your garden? Jean’s team of gardeners can help (closed in winter).
• Want to apply for a Personal Independence Payment or challenge a decision? Sandra K, Venna and Jo-Anne are the team to see.
• Curious about counselling? Speak to Suzie, our counselling lead (there is a sliding scale of services priced to meet all budgets).
• Do you have a teenager with disabilities who’d love to make friends with another local person with similar interests? Jamie and Junaina can help.
• For health, housing and social care advice, or help with connecting to other services in the borough, it’s Lorraine and Jo you need to see.
• If you have money and debt concerns and need help to understand your options and take action to resolve them, Sandra J and Suzie can help.
• Looking to get back into employment after a period of absence due to disability? Jamie is our resident expert.
