Dementia Friendly Villages is a project run by Community Links in partnership with the Richmond Dementia Action Alliance. It works with local businesses and organisations to help local villages take small steps to become Dementia Friendly.
For local businesses and organisations, this involves:
These small actions will help raise awareness of dementia and have a real impact in making Hampton a dementia friendly community. To find out more, contact Community Links.
As part of our ongoing commitment to Village Planning and strengthening communities, we have launched the Village Planning Fund. The fund is also known as Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL), and is a percentage of a development levy we place on most new developments to provide the infrastructure needed to support growth in the borough.
The fund will be used to deliver physical and social infrastructure projects for community benefit, which are addressing the demand that development has placed on an area. Applicants must live or work in the borough of Richmond upon Thames.
If you are fund raising for a new project, whether you are a community group or an informal group, our Civic Pride Fund is available to help fund community initiatives.
