*edit*Reaching the ISolated Elderly
*edit*

Welcome to Regenerate-RISE

Up to 1 March 2021, we have provided 29,008 individual responses throughout the Covid pandemic.  We are supporting 561 people regularly with occasional support to residents in sheltered housing as we have recently received a grant from the London Community Foundation to reach a further 500 people across the borough of Wandsworth.  There are so many older people in our communities who have become more isolated due to Covid, so many who have become unwell due to depression and ill health and sadly we have lost 31 people during the last 10 months.

We believe that in our corner of London, the borough of Wandsworth, we can be "a light in the darkness" and bring hope for a brighter future.  We concentrate on meeting peoples needs where they are at and helping improve the emotional and psychological wellbeing through our "Expressions of Kindness" as well as the love, care and support of our dedicated team of staff and volunteers.  A massive thank you to all those who have funded and supported us over the last 10 months and we look forward to developing our service to meet a changing world for older people.  more...

Expressions of Kindness

We are not able to organise our usual Kings and Queens in the marquee on the Green in Danebury Avenue this year, but we are hoping to do a number of events in the locality that reaches out to those who have spent the majority of the last 5 months indoors.  Every two weeks we give out extra gifts to older people and these have included scones with jam, toiletries, flowers, chocolates, a ploughman's lunch, cakes, fresh fruit and gifts that will show people that we care.  Regenerate-RISE is very grateful to all those who have helped us deliver our gifts and we will continue to do so in the weeks and months ahead.

The Platt Christian Centre

On 9 November 1807, seven friends met to consult as to building a place of worship in Felsham Road and they raised amongst themselves the sum of £57 and formed an association to obtain further help.  The result was that on 9 August 1808 the building known as the Platt Chapel was opened.  The services were well attended and £100 was raised during the day towards the total cost of £900.  By 1827, the Platt Chapel was so popular that even the addition of a gallery was insufficient and often the vestry as well as the Chapel was crowded on a Sunday evening.  The Chapel was again enlarged in the year 1830.  From 1872 the Platt Chapel was closed for awhile and a site was procured in Oxford Road at a cost of £750 where an iron chapel was erected to accommodate 500 people.  However by 1897 the Platt Chapel was open again and was transferred by a Trust Deed to the City Mission and it remained with them for a long time.  more...

*edit title*Time to Reflect on Others

Knitting the rainbow for Romania


Knitting the rainbow for children in Romania - we believe it is really important that whilst we are in lock down, we focus our time on others. We have now completed 45 Jumpers, 6 Hats, 51 Scarves ad 14 Blankets and are very grateful to all those who have knitted during the lockdown.We will look forward to seeing photographs of the children in Romania receiving the knitted garments when Andy from RegenerateUK go out there next. They will be so welcome for the next Winter and we hope very much that they may be able to go out there this year. Keep knitting - it is very rewarding.

Lunches


We have now delivered 4,235 Lunches across Wandsworth, ready to be microwaved. We were very grateful to the London Community Response Fund for being able to subsidise our lunches and we now provide these 4 days a week and the cost is £6 for a lunch, dessert and a drink.  They are delivered  by volunteers and our staff and will arrive in time for lunch.  They are cooked freshly on the day and we change our Menu every month.  Please see the August Menu and let us know if you want to try it out.

Delivering Supply Bags


Since March we have delivered 3,206 Supply Bags to people who are in lock down and to those recently who are unable to go out due to their disability or vulnerability.  We have been grateful to all those who have contributed items and it has been amazing to see the response by those we deliver to.


 

 

We aim to continue delivering Supply Bags for as long as is necessary.  We travel across the borough of Wandsworth to every post code and if you know of anyone who is in need of support, please do contact us and we will do our best to deliver a Supply Bag within 24 hours.  We currently have 377 people that we have provided a service to and as people begin to do their own shopping, the number will reduce

*edit title*RISE SW11 and RISE SW15

RISE SW11


As all Day Centres have been closed across the UK, St Michael's has stood empty since 18 March 2020 and we are now planning to re-open the week beginning 12 April 2021. We will be transporting clients to the Centre and still providing lunch for those in the community who wish to receive them.  We will however be stopping the Supply Bags as the community begins to get back to some kind of normality. We are really looking forward to face-to-face support with our clients again.

St Michael's has a Dementia-friendly minibus with a screen showing photographs of staff, the menu of the day and plays 40s and 50s music. It has lights around the bus and butterflies on the windows along with soft cushions on the seats and our RISE SW11 clients are looking forward to returning to their Centre.

RISE SW15


 

We now have a programme of refurbishment for the Platt Christian Centre, beginning with a new boiler, new fire alarm system, partitions, a new roof and redecoration. We are also planning to transform one of our SW15 buses with a new wrap around to give a positive message to people in the community. We have now carried out 29,008 individual support services from our SW15 base and have been very grateful to all the volunteers who have helped, some right from the beginning.  We look forward to transforming the Centre for our clients in the not too distant future.

The Challenge of A New Era




To enable our Reablement Centre to become a reality, we now have to purchase the Platt Centre from Livability, the landlord and we need the help of the local community to make this a reality. If you would like to help us to fundraise, please do email us on the Contact Page. Our target is to raise as much as we can towards the £629,955 that is necessary to buy the property. We have come so far over the last few years and there is no doubt that we have had a major set back, but in the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we believe that our Reablement Centre will be of more use than ever before.

The Platt Centre will be a place of excellence for the care of the elderly and whatever the future holds, we will combine outreach, activities for small bubbles and intermediate care for older people coming out of hospital. If you would like to support us, please email or go to our JustGiving page.
