Welcome to Regenerate-RISE

Raising funds to purchase the Platt Christian Centre SW15

The Platt Christian Centre has been the home of Regenerate-RISE for 15 years and the landlord, Livability have decided to sell the Centre.  We have been given until 30 September 2020 to exchange contracts and we are therefore organising a fundraising week 19 - 26 September 2020 to raise as much as we can.  Our vision for the Reablement Centre still stands and once we have purchased the freehold, we will start again with planning the Reablement Centre.   You can with your bubble:

or you can organise your own Dinner Party/Curry Night for your bubble and each person contributes £10 to Regenerate-RISE or take part in our colouring competition (children up to 5 - 11 or people over 70) and contribute £2 or go to our "Donate" page and reference The Platt Centre or go to our Just Giving page.  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. These are the first three of many jumpers that are being knitted at home - we will look forward to the photos of them being given to the children by RegenerateUK on their next trip to Romania. We have now made 10 Sweaters, 18 Scarves, 4 Hats and 7 children's blankets. We have the wool, the needles and the pattern - if you would like to knit a sweater for a child in Romania, email us for the knitting kit.

Expressions of kindness


Whilst enjoying the sunshine and lifting the mood of the elderly residents of this sheltered housing on the Lennox Estate in Roehampton, we gave out an Expression of Kindness to all the residents, which consisted of a gift of toiletries and scones with jam.Everyone had a great time enjoying the music from Songs on Wheels and even the families in the high rise blocks were opening their windows to hear the sounds of the old familiar songs.

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 closed across the UK, St Michael's has stood empty since 18 March 2020 and we are currently unsure as to when we will be able to open again. When we do, it will be with bubbles of 6 people - all who will be brought in on our transport. We will do two sessions a day and provide a hot lunch for both and an activity. RISE SW15 will initially remain as the outreach centre.

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


The Platt Centre is being used for the Outreach during the Covid-19 crisis and it is a hub of activity whilst preparing Supply Bags and Activity Kits to go out to the older people in lock down. Although our vision for the Reablement Centre has had to be halted during this time - we are currently applying for a mortgage to purchase the property.  Regenerate-RISE already owns the two flats above the Centre and we are looking forward to owning the whole premises to enable our vision to still be outworked.

Since the outbreak of the virus, we have provided 13,140 individual support services and although the Supply Bags are going down in number due to people beginning to do their own shopping, there are still many in our community who are unable to leave their home.  Please do contact us through the Contact page if you would like to support us during the Covid-19 crisis in any way.  We are always looking for volunteers to help us and the challenge of Covid-19 for older people remains as strong today as it was when it first began.

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.
