Organisational Context

Richmond Futures is a wholly owned subsidiary of Richmond Fellowship Tasmania Inc., the largest community-based providers of community mental health services in Tasmania. Our vision is to ‘inspire a healthy community, where people are leaders in their own lives’ and our mission is to ‘deliver excellence through person centred, recovery and wellbeing services’. We strive to achieve this by promoting choice and control for all our consumers and NDIS participants and deliver services that help them achieve their goals.

We believe that recovery is an individual process and that with the right kind of support everyone can live a life based on their own strengths, values and goals for the future. We use an approach that supports individuals to identify their personal strengths and values, to set goals and help make progress towards achieving them.
