W-rap Project

Re-Instate / W-rap Project

For important product recall information, please see here

Re-Instate’s W-rap Project (Well-being, Recovery, Activity Parcels) is entirely co-produced and managed by people who use our services.

The W-rap story so far…

During one of our ideas groups, clients said they wanted a better quality of toiletries and some practical items/activities for long term hospital stays. This gave us the idea to……..

 Provide a series of parcels designed to be gifted at specific points during a person’s recovery journey.
 Apply for funding to trial the ideas in hospitals.

The term W-rap™ stands for Well-being, Recovery , Activity Parcels. Our name was created by us and is now Trade-marked.

The parcels are designed to provide at least five full-sized items associated with The New Economics Foundations’ Five Ways to Well-being to encourage people to incorporate these five actions into their lives.

The Five Ways to Well-being are a set of evidence-based actions which promote well-being, outlined as; Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give. You can learn more here.

The Five Ways to Well-being will remain an integral part of the decision making process when incorporating products into our range.

Our pilot project supported by South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s ‘Smile’ Campaign, trialed admission packs, activity packs and going home packs for in-patients at the Ladywell Unit.

Following the success of the pilot, SLaM commissioned Re-Instate to provide bespoke packs to in-patients across all four boroughs. 

In addition, funding from the London Community Foundation helped us target and work with young people both as recipients and facilitators of W-rap.

At the end of 2018, the London Borough of Bexley in conjunction with Bexley CCG awarded Re-Instate a grant from the Better Care Fund to target W-rap towards older people isolated in their homes.

In September 2019, Re-Instate received a grant from the National Lottery’s Community Fund to develop W-rap within Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust. At the start of 2020, we were awarded a grant from The Pixel Fund to develop the volunteering within the W-rap project.

If you would like to donate items for W-rap, we’d love any of the following unused items:

  • Branded full sized personal hygiene products (both male and female)
  • Shampoo, conditioner, body lotion or moisturisers (hand creams etc)
  • Tooth brushes, toothpaste

Then came delivery day

We were also featured in the Maudsley Newsletter!

And with that, our first big order was completed, feedback has been really positive. New orders are arriving and we have recently received new funding from Tesco to provide packs to young people in need. What a milestone!
