RISE SW11 has been chosen to be one of the Tesco Bags of Help charities.  If you would like to visit the stores in Brixton, Clapham Wandsworth, Lambeth, Streatham Crown, Waterloo Road and many others  before 31 October 2018 and support us in our “Enjoying Life to the Full in SW11” we would really appreciate it.  We are planning to purchase a number of items in order that our members can enjoy activities such as cooking, music, art & crafts, karaoke, a DVD player and games on the DVD along with other items that would enhance the project.

We are very grateful to Westminster Building Services for their recent donation of £500 towards reaching the isolated elderly in the area.  Lisa and the team are planning our Christmas events and we are looking forward to receiving a donation to help cover the costs and make Christmas a special occasion this year for our members.

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 for October 2018

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.
