The Richmond Parish Lands Charity

Grants for students in state education who are aged 19 or over and have lived within postcode boundaries of TW10, TW9, SW13 or SW14 in Richmond (but not the whole borough) for at least 6 months. Applications from students aged 16 to 18 are sometimes considered.

Grants may be given towards:

  • fees
  • transport
  • childcare
  • books, equipment, uniform
  • other living costs associated with the course or training programme.
  • Private fees will only be considered for courses or training programmes the state sector does not offer.

Who is eligible?

People who are:

  • aged 19 or over (although sometimes 16 - 18 year olds are supported).
  • have lived within postcode boundaries TW10, TW9, SW13 or SW14 in Richmond (but no the whole borough) for at least six months.
  • The course the student is on will lead to a properly accredited, recognised qualification.
  • Preference is given to people who have been educated in the borough and/or can demonstrate community links (e.g. family or voluntary work).

Please note: the charity does not usually give grants for private school fees.

How to apply?

Other information

The charity also provides low-rent accommodation to people who live within our Benefit Area (TW9, TW10, SW13, SW14) or have close connections in Richmond.

Please note that there is very little chance of vacancies arising in the near future. Our priority is to provide accommodation to those living under the threat of homelessness.
