About Us

Our History

The work of The Richmond Charities, housing and supporting elderly people in housing need in our borough, goes back over 400 years. The first of Richmond's almshouses were Queen Elizabeth's Almshouses, founded in 1600. From then on, over the centuries, wealthy benefactors continued to endow land and property for the building of almshouses and The Richmond Charities now owns and runs 140 almshouses spread over 10 estates in Richmond and Twickenham.
