RHEA (Richmond Hill Elderly action) is an independent charity working with and for people aged 55 and over living in Richmond Hill, East End Park, Cross Green and parts of Osmondthorpe, all in the Leeds 9 area.

RHEA currently has 600 members and are always welcoming more to the services and activities provided, all of which promote social inclusion and help people to live the life they choose. RHEA was established 20 years ago to address severe social exclusion and a lack of community activity. Since then RHEA has gone from strength to strength and continually develops services to reflect the changing needs of people.
