Holy Trinity Barnes currently supports five local charities with the work they do in our community. Below is information about them all and if you would like to financially give to these, please check out our Giving page for bank details, putting the charity name in as the payment reference.
The Vineyard is close to the heart of Richmond Upon Thames, was opened in 2012 to meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable in our community.
Amongst other things, they run Drop-Ins for those in crisis, a café, Foodbank, provide personal health advice through a community nurse and run a charity shop.
Regenerate works in and around the Roehampton Estate to transform lives and community.
They run a Juice Bar in the heart of the estate, provide mentoring & coaching for young people, run a music studio and football clubs & have established ‘The Feel Good Bakery’ as a social enterprise to develop life skills for the workplace. Each year young people are taken to Kenya to be challenged whilst experiencing poverty in a developing country.
Riverbank was founded in 2010 and is based in Richmond borough, with the vision to build friendship and meaningful relationships with vulnerable Mums and families.
They run groups for mums providing support and practical skills training as well as working in several Borough primary schools, working with children before they reach crisis point. Some of the mums they have previously worked with are now volunteers.
Loved Valued Able is a charity (co-founded by members of Holy Trinity Richmond) that teaches R.S.E (relationship and sex education) in schools and other youth settings. Their core belief is that we are all loved, valued and able (LVA). Their ambition is to encourage positive self-esteem, healthy relationships and equip young people with the information they need to be sexually healthy and make important decisions for themselves.
There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, mostly due to HIV/AIDS. LIV focuses on a solution to aid this crisis. They place these children into a family environment with a trained foster mother to love them, a school to educate them, and where all their needs are met. If these children are equipped with essential moral values and life skills, they will grow up to be a generation that will influence positive change within South Africa, Africa and the world.
