Village Plan for the Hampton Hill area

How you can help

Dementia Friendly Villages

People living with dementia want to continue to use their local high streets and amenities but can often find it a challenging place to be. It is important that we all take small steps to make our communities as inclusive and understanding as possible.

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:

  • Key staff attend a ‘Dementia Friends Session’
  • The organisation signs up to the Dementia Action Alliance, pledging 3 simple actions on how they will make a difference
  • To show their support, organisations display the ‘Working to Become Dementia Friendly’ window sticker

These small actions will help raise awareness of dementia and have a real impact in making Hampton Hill a dementia friendly community. To find out more, download the toolkit or contact Community Links.

Village Planning Fund

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.

Civic Pride Fund

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.

Richmond-upon-Thames Council for Voluntary Service (RCVS)
