Living Well Project

Living Well is a project run by Re-Instate which supports adults with learning disabilities and autistic adults to be able to play a full role in their local community. Our program ‘Five ways to Living Well’ is based on the New Economics Foundation’s Five Ways to Well-being: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give. This will support people to achieve their life goals by the comprehensive range of activities, groups and classes that we will provide.

This project is supported by a grant from City Bridge Trust, the funding arm of the City of London Corporation’s charity Bridge House Estates (1035628). 

“I now do art & gardening at home. I have made a garden on my balcony. I like doing art, it makes my mental health better.”

Basils’ (named after Basil Huett, the founder of Re-Instate) is Re-Instate’s five-star kitchen and refreshment area offering drinks and snacks to groups and people who use our facilities.

Basils’ is run by people who use our services. We offer work placements that include the opportunity to study for accredited qualifications in Safer Food Handling and Customer Service.

Re-Instate’s work experience can often be a first step towards people achieving work goals. The development of work and social skills help to build confidence and is a stepping-stone towards wider engagement with the local community.

Living Well runs a barista training course where clients learn how to take orders, make and deliver them so they can add them to their skills and CV.
