Who We Are

Revitalise is a national charity providing respite care in a holiday setting for disabled people and carers for over 50 years.

Revitalise was founded in 1963 as the Winged Fellowship Trust (WFT). In 2004 WFT became Vitalise and in 2014 Vitalise became Revitalise.

We currently run three holiday centres in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport.

We currently provide nearly 5,000 breaks each year, but this number represents just 1% of those who would benefit from our services. The need for high quality respite breaks like those provided by Revitalise has never been higher.

In order to meet this high and increasing demand for our services, we aim to establish three more centres across the UK, doubling our current capacity.

Our Breaks

Our centres cater for adults with a variety of different disabilities. We aim to provide a refreshing alternative to traditional residential respite care. Each centre offers short breaks in a relaxed, holiday-style environment, with a variety of trips and activities. Guests on our breaks are supported by volunteers who provide companionship and assistance.
