Free Telephone Advice for Local Not for Profits

Richmond CVS has introduced a new service for not-for-profit organisations based in or offering services to Richmond residents.

Working in partnership with leading law firm, Russell-Cooke, we have launched a new telephone advice line which offers up to 15 minutes pro bono advice. Through this service, local organisations can access free specialist help with a range of issues such as:

  • HR
  • Governance
  • Legal Structures and Charitable Status
  • Contracting and collaboration
  • Mergers
  • Intellectual Property
  • Leases and Property

Support from the helpline is available Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 5pm.

This new development is part of a range of support available through Richmond CVS. If you have a query which you need support or advice on please email

We will need brief details about your organisation and the nature of the issue you need assistance with. All requests will be reviewed and Richmond CVS will either refer you to the helpline or identify other appropriate sources of support for you.

Please read the terms of use of the service below before contacting us to access the adviceline.
