About RFT

Who we are

Richmond Fellowship Tasmania is a locally operated Tasmanian not for profit organisation which has been supporting people facing mental health challenges and social disadvantage for over 30 years. We are an independent, non-government, non-religiously affiliated organisation that recognises you as a whole person not just your mental health diagnosis. 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 deliver services that help them achieve their goals. Our values underpin all aspects of our organisation, we believe that;

  • mental health and social inclusion is everyone’s right;
  • recovery is a journey, and is as unique as you are; and
  • every one of us has the right to feel a sense of wellbeing.

At Richmond Fellowship Tasmania we embrace each person’s unique journey and support people to become leaders in their own lives. We work alongside people and those that are important in their lives to promote choice and hope, build resilience and grow individual self-determination. Richmond Fellowship Tasmania is fully accredited by the Quality Improvement Council, a registered NDIS Provider and a registered Charity.
