The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is a charity which supports around 2500 people across Scotland with a broad range of needs to live as independently as possible in their own homes and communities.

We are the largest provider of social care services in Scotland, providing personalised, high-quality community-based support services for those who require support in their lives. Some may have mental health difficulties, learning disabilities or autism; others may have dementia, alcohol or drug issues or forensic backgrounds.

All of our services work in person-centred ways to offer choice, promote inclusion and maximise ability.

We manage in the region of 190 services in both rural and urban settings, employing more than 2500 staff. In working with 28 local authorities, we have a proven track record and understanding in providing high quality services to meet the unique needs and aspirations of the individuals we support.

We are people-focused, motivated by the needs of individuals and communities, not profit. We are driven by strong values and a firm commitment to choice, dignity and social inclusion.
