RISE SW11 closed on Friday 31 March after 6 years of working in partnership with St Michaels C of E Church and many years of funding from Wandsworth Council. For 2023 onwards Wandsworth decided to give RISE SW15 a Direct Award and put RISE SW11 out to tender.  The project became unviable for Regenerate-RISE and no other organisation was appointed to take it on.  We came to an agreement with the Council that RISE SW11 and RISE SW15 will merge together under one project at the Platt Mission in Putney and we will be transporting SW11 members by Dial-a-Ride as well as by our own transport.  We are very grateful for the years that we were in SW11 and are very sorry to be leaving.  Lisa will be overseeing RISE in Putney and all our staff, except one, will be staying with us.  We had a great celebration on Wednesday 22 March and a special event with the Church on the Friday.  We are grateful to Rev Tif Ewins for supporting us whilst at St Michael's and we look forward to a new era in Putney, with a new Contract for 5 years and look forward to providing a greater service throughout the borough of Wandsworth.


We are grateful to the volunteers who have regularly helped and supported RISE SW11, grateful to the various companies that have given their staff to volunteer for a day with us.  We have also enjoyed the students from Emanuel School and the children from Thomas Clapham - it has been great getting to know everyone and we have appreciated it so much.

It has been a time in history that we will never forget and although life moves on, we will never forget those we lost during Covid or the following months and we will be forever grateful for the opportunity to make a difference to so many lives.

Following the theft of our minibus, we are looking forward to using our new Dementia-friendly minibus in the future as we have adapted our bus with a screen informing members of the date, where they are going, what is for lunch along with photos of staff and this is very helpful to all those travelling on the bus.  We have birds and butterflies on the windows and the skylight as well as bright headrests, cushions and lights around the top.
