Be a Revival Proud Member!
Revival is the Mind in Bexley and East Kent Social Enterprise, during lockdown 2021 it was forced out of its premises and has been trying to relocate ever since. The overwhelming response we received from the whole community made us realise how much our work, support and wellbeing café hub was valued and needed.
Now we need your help.
The Revival Café has the dual role of being a wellbeing hub and the main source of income that allows us to provide our wellbeing and mental help support and initiatives. With High Street rents prohibitive if we have any chance of viability we need the community to invest in Revival to help us to relocate and remain secure on the High Street.
We are asking if you can donate £10 a year.
That's around 83p a month.
All donations are processed via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, click the grey Pay by Debit or Credit Card button on the screen that appears after you press Donate Now above.
* The RPM (Revival Proud Member) Agreement relates to email contact with RPM updates, special offers and Revival news. We send our emails via MailChimp so if you didn't want these updates you can unsubscribe when you receive your welcome email.
We understand this may not be affordable to everyone but if those who so kindly signed the petition donated this amount, you will help ensure Revival and its wellbeing café hub, remains on the High Street as a visible, viable and sustainable presence raising mental health awareness, challenging stigma, developing mental health and wellbeing support and initiatives.
We can continue providing an Employment Support Programme for those with mild to moderate mental health issues and are at a sufficient stage in their recovery to be able to engage, support others and to return to, or maintain employment.
We will also be able to develop and maintain our partnership working to continue our mental health outreach delivering food and support to vulnerable and isolated local residents in mental health need.
If you would prefer to make a one-off donation of any amount, please use the button below.
The first 4,000 people who donate this amount will become RPMs - Revival Proud Members - and have their names as part of an art installation within Revival’s new premises, in the form of a vinyl record.
As Proud Members, you will have invested in a community wellbeing space for all, ensuring that year on year Revival remains viable, actively supporting local residents in mental health need - and working as part of a large local network of mental health and wellbeing support organisations, charities, groups and individuals.
Any money received that takes us over the basic costs to keep Revival services on the High Street will be used to directly support our partnership with Food Friends, delivering food and support to local residents in mental health need. It will also be used to develop and maintain the Revival peer mentoring programme providing 1:1 goal orientated support helping people to move forward and build on their achievements giving them the confidence to set new goals to work towards. Peer mentors use their own experience to inform the mentor-mentee relationship and ensures they can work together with understanding and empathy. Full training is provided for mentor volunteers.
