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.
They currently run three accessible holiday centres in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport.
They say their 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.”
They say that their “guests come to us not just for the care they need but also for a fabulous holiday experience.”

Who can benefit from Revitalise respite holidays?
They provide respite holidays for disabled people and carers aged 18 or over. Carers can have a break with us too, but they do not have to. They are more than welcome to come along with the person they care for and have a proper holiday too, while Revitalise take over the care.
Their expert nursing and care staff can provide support for people with more than 150 different disabilities.
