Revitalise is a national charity that has been providing respite holidays for disabled people and carers for over 50 years. We have three Revitalise centres, one in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport, each providing a wide range of accessible activities, excursions and entertainment.

We are very lucky to have dedicated volunteers, who provide companionship and support to our guests, ensuring they have a truly unforgettable holiday and we would love you to join them. Our volunteers form a crucial part of the Revitalise team and our guests always tell us that a big part of what makes their holiday so special are the volunteers.

Our Social Volunteers provide companionship and social support to our guests. Friendly, enthusiastic volunteers, create the holiday atmosphere just by being there!
