Welcome to Regenerate-RISE

A massive thank you to everyone who donated towards our new minibus for RISE SW11, we have purchased a Ford Transit with a tracker and are currently having our signwriting and modifications done to ensure our bus is Dementia-friendly.  RISE SW11 are currently using a RISE SW15 bus and we are looking forward to having the new bus on the road again.

Our Service has Started Again

During the pandemic we have provided 37,250 individual supports to 1000 people across Wandsworth and approximately 500 people received a regular service.  We have opened both Centres with limited numbers following strict guidelines and our members are thrilled to be back again.

Throughout the pandemic we lost 42 of our members and we will miss them very much indeed - we hope very much to have a memorial to all those we will miss and we are grateful to be able to continue to provide a service to all those who are returning.  A huge thank you to the volunteers and staff for their dedication and commitment throughout this period.  We look forward to a future dedicated to providing greater support across the borough.

Mo Smith MBE, FRSA - Founder and Chair of Trustees

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...

Creativity at its Best


We now have 60 jumpers, 10 hats, 55 scarves and 20 blankets ready to go to Romania the next time Andy from RegenerateUK travels there and will look forward to receiving photographs of the smiling faces when they receive the gifts. In the meantime, we have re-opened our Centres and our members have enjoyed taking part in the art and crafts on a regular basis.

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

RISE SW11


 

RISE SW11 has opened its doors again after a long period of being closed. We are restricting the number attending and the wearing of masks is mandatory with infection control high on our agenda. Nevertheless our clients are thrilled to be back again and our programme is very creative, artistic and full of music, games and great events. On 6 July we had the pleasure of hosting Emmanuel School with their musicians and students serving our clients with delicious cakes.

We are providing lunches to those in the community who are unable to attend and very grateful to the regular volunteers who deliver the lunches with a smile. Our minibus carries 8 clients and Dial-a-Ride are back transporting one at a time to the Centre.

RISE SW15


We have opened the Platt Centre after a complete refurbishment and on 14 June 2021 we welcomed members back. We have increased our numbers slowly and both our transport and Dial-a-Ride bring people in to a day of activities, support and delicious meals.

The Challenge of A New Era




We have now purchased the Platt Centre and are renaming it "The Platt Mission". We are grateful to all those who fundraised to enable this to become a reality. We are now in Stage 4 of the Reablement Centre and plan to work hard over the next year to raise the funds to build our floors above the Centre for older people on discharge from hospital.

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.
