About us

Off The Record is a small charity which serves its local community, providing the only walk-in service for young people in crisis in the borough. We see approximately 1,000 new young people for 3,000 sessions every year. These statistics indicate that 1 in every 3 young people who live in this borough from the age of 11 to 24 may have accessed our service at some point.

Off The Record is supported by a team of dedicated volunteer counsellors and two paid part-time managers. Borough grants for services like ours are no longer available and, while we are supported by two highly-valued local funders, Hampton Fuel Allotment Charity and Richmond Parish Lands Charity, most other funding has to be raised annually through applying to trusts and foundations. Raising funds in this way can be extremely difficult and time-consuming work, and we need more diverse and regular sources of funding in order to survive.

Support Off The Record in one of 3 ways:

  • volunteer your time
  • make a donation
  • do a fundraising event
