RISE was very pleased to receive a grant from Groundwork and has been able to buy equipment to enhance the activities held at RISE SW11.  These included a portable microphone, a karaoke machine, more musical instruments along with a good selection of art and craft materials.

We are very grateful to Westminster Building Services for their recent donation of £500 towards reaching the isolated elderly in the area.  We are also grateful to the London Community Grant for being able to put on chair-based dance exercises for the last year.

It has been a brilliant way of exercise for our clients, they have enjoyed the music and the afternoons very much indeed.








RISE SW11 was donated a new minibus from the legacy of Mary McNamara and the members are very grateful to have a Ford Transit which is much more economical than the previous Mercedes.  The bus will be a “Dementia-Friendly” bus and the interior will be designed to make the journey for people with Dementia, fun and a memorable experience.

Rise SW11

Regenerate-RISE took over the management of St Michael’s Day Centre in Cobham Close Battersea on 1 November 2017. During the summer months there has been a total refurbishment throughout and everyone is very pleased with the new look – the winter will be much warmer, the rooms are lighter and there are TV screens in each room.  A glass office has been built in one room and all the toilets have been completely refurbished.

Lisa Bryan is now the RISE SW11 Co-ordinator and will visit all new referrals, although transport will only be offered to those living within the catchment area of SW11.  We have transferred many clients to Dial-a-Ride which is working extremely well, we have chair-based dance exercises every Monday and if you are over 65 you are welcome to attend.  Regular visits from local schools and a varied programme of activities along with a very varied lunch menu is enjoyed by all.

The lunches are £6, Membership is £1 a week and tea and coffee costs 50p.  If you would like to see the Menu please click on the following link Menu September 2019

RISE SW11 is working in partnership with St Michael’s C of E Church and the staff are looking forward to developing the services that we provide.

The Activities Programme for July is Programme SW11 September 2019

Members are really enjoying the art and have discovered new gifts and skills.




RISE SW11 initiated taking part in the Alzheimers Society’s Cupcake Day which raised £129 – we consider it is important to support local and national initiatives that are centred around older people and by

Members decorated cup cakes, friends bought them in to sell and it was a great activity



We have started a knitting group and hope to make Twiddlemuffs for people with Dementia – they are bright, colourful and great to touch.




For further information, please telephone Lisa on 020 7228 0245

We continue to provide transport for our clients in all three projects although RISE SW15 has currently suspended its outings due to the fact that we only have one driver currently.

We will be taking the members to Worthing in August on two days and they are looking forward to their trip to the coast.


6 staff and volunteers accompanied 6 clients, 3 in wheelchairs to the 02 arena to the Hillsong Europe Conference.  The conference brought together 10,000 people mainly from Europe and a few other countries (70 in all) where we watched a dramatic version of the Easter story called King of Heaven, enjoyed the music and learnt a lot from some great speakers.  It was inspiring and every person that came with us said they would like to go again next year.

We went to the Dover House Singers concert celebrating the summer of 1969 and remembered the flower power, the sixties and the VW campers.  We listened to the choir performing the sounds of the sixties and they raised £1,224.10 towards our new Reablement Centre.  It was a great evening and we are looking forward now to the Christmas concert.







This year we are going by coach to Eastbourne in July, which has been funded with a grant from Esso and we are looking forward to a great day out.

Kings and Queens will be held on 1 September 2018 in the Marquee on the Green in Danebury Avenue.  Free tickets are available from Regenerate-RISE, The Platt Centre, 22 Felsham Road, SW15 1DA.  We are looking forward to a great afternoon.
