Welcome to Re-Instate

Re-Instate is a charity working to improve employment opportunities, quality of life and well-being for disadvantaged people in the London Borough of Bexley including people experiencing mental ill-health, people with learning disabilities and young people.

A key part of the vision for Re-Instate is the provision of employment services that build sustainable recovery for people experiencing mental ill-health.


Spud-Buddies is Re-Instate’s latest project to take healthy food to the local community. Spud-Buddies is giving clients of Re-Instate the opportunity to learn about catering and customer service in a real Social Enterprise.

If you’d like to see Spud-Buddies at your event, call Maria on 01322 438 155

Anyone for Coffee?

Barista Buddies is a new project that will support clients to learn some of the skills required in becoming a Barista. Hosted by Basils’ Cafe, Barista Buddies is funded by South London and the Maudsley.

Showcasing the W-rap project

As part of NHS England’s Celebrating Public Participation in Healthcare grant scheme, Re-Instate were invited to showcase the success of our W-rap project and partnership with South London and the Maudsley Hospital. As one of only eight organisations in England to receive funding, our film is made entirely by people who use our services and celebrates the power of co-production. Even the music is composed by us! Huge thank you to everyone who took part in the making of the film. For further information, click HERE.
