Revitalise is a national charity providing respite care in a holiday setting for disabled people and carers for over 50 years. Revitalise also offers inspirational opportunities for volunteers through one of the largest and most diverse volunteering programmes of any UK charity.

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 accessible holiday centres in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport.

Our mission is to enable disabled people in the UK to access essential breaks with care, and provide inspirational opportunities for volunteers.

We firmly believe that disabled people should have the same rights, freedoms, responsibilities and quality of life as those without disabilities.
