W-RAP UPDATE

Following the surge in demand for W-rap (Well-being Recovery Activity Parcels) during the pandemic, we are delighted to have been awarded a significant Covid Response Grant from the National Lottery’s Community Fund. Covering the period July – December, the grant allows us to develop and send out thousands more parcels to local people struggling in isolation. The latest orders have gone out to the hard working staff on the front-line at the Erith and St Mary’s Urgent Care Centres. We are currently working with the Repton Community Centre in Ashford to provide 1,600 assorted packs to local residents in need of a lift. I will be interested in hearing from any group who feel that W-rap could help. E-mail Margaret at mbaderin@re-instate.co.uk

Important Announcement: We have received information from Amazon about the recall of a faulty product supplied as part of a mixed pack of sensory items. For details see the W-rap page.

THE LIVING WELL PROJECT

Living Well is our learning disability project, supporting clients with a range of work and social activities. The Living Well project, including all activities at the community hub have been suspended until further notice.

Spud-Buddies

Spud-Buddies is giving clients of Re-Instate the opportunity to learn about catering and customer service in a real social enterprise. For the duration of the lockdown, the Spud Buddies project will be put on hold. Please watch this space for further details.

Showcasing the W-rap project

Some of the key beneficiaries of W-rap have been inpatients during long-term hospital stays. To see the effect that W-rap can have check out the above video. For further information, click HERE.

Basils’ @Re-Instate

Basils’ Cafe, our five-star kitchen offering clients a range of delicious and nutritious meals and catering experience has been temporarily suspended during the pandemic.

Early Intervention Project

Since September 2018, Re-Instate have run an Early Intervention project to compliment the successful Employment Service. The aim is simple, to offer people employment support at the appropriate time before a problem becomes a crisis! After two years of funding from the Better Care Fund, we were delighted to receive a grant from NLCF COVID-19 Response Fund co-ordinated by City Bridge Trust to continue the project until the end of March 2021.

If you, or anyone you know are feeling depressed, overwhelmed or anxious about a work situation, please contact us for help and support. For more information, click HERE.
