Stronger together

Royal Voluntary Service works in partnership and coalition with other charities. Together we share skills and expertise and maximise the impact we can achieve.

The Richmond Group of Charities

The Richmond Group of Charities is a collaboration of leading health and social care organisations in the voluntary sector working together as a collective voice to better influence health and social care policy. We aim to improve the care and support for the 15 million people living with long term conditions we represent.

In November 2022, The Richmond Group published No Time to Lose - changing the trajectory for people living with long term conditions.

This report draws together data, insight and patient stories from The Richmond Group’s 12 member charities, with wider evidence, about the impact of the pandemic on people living with long-term, chronic or complex illnesses, who were amongst the hardest hit and still now find themselves lagging far behind in terms of recovering their health and well-being. Our analysis highlights the issues for this group of people before the pandemic, the impact of the pandemic and cost-of-living crisis, and the ongoing and long-term effects.

Shaping the Future with Volunteering

A group of the country’s leading volunteer involving charities, have launched their shared commitment to support all communities across the UK to be dynamic and welcoming places for volunteering.
