What We Do
Get Connected is a variety of activities and events that young people and their families can access and take part in from youth drop in sessions and community festivals to receiving and food box for the whole family.
ASHBURTON YOUTH CENTRE
Regenerate’s youth centre on the Ashburton estate, is a space for young people to have fun, learn new skills, achieve personal goals and discover how they can make a difference in the world. We run the Get Active Program there which involves gym activities, pool and table tennis, creative activities and outdoor games.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 5pm – 8pm. We run football sessions in partnership with Chelsea Kicks on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for ages 11-16’s
THE JUICE BAR
The Juice Bar is Regenerate’s base in the heart of the Alton estate and is a great place for our small group work to happen, for young people can hang out, cook and eat, play games and use our music studio.
Tuesday 5pm -8pm.
ROEHAMPTON COMMUNITY BOX
At the start of 2020, Regenerate and Rackets Cubed established a local initiative called the Roehampton Community Box in response to Covid-19. By working with Heathmere Primary and Wandsworth Council on the Alton, the Lennox and Ashburton estates have been able to offer essential food, personal hygiene, activity and educational supplies for children and their families in the local community facing food crisis. In total, we delivered over 6500 community boxes in 2020, and we expect demand will continue to grow in 2021.
Since lockdown lifted we provide Community Boxes for families with children aged 11+ which can be collected from the Ashburton Youth Centre on Friday afternoons between 2-4pm.
THE FEEL GOOD FESTIVALS
Every year we run a range of community festivals from small too large. ‘The Feel Good Festivals’ are full of fun activities for people of all ages. These are times for the community to come together using music, food stalls, table top sales, mini funfairs, and inflatables. This is a chance for us all to celebrate the community of Roehampton. Watch the video from 2019’s festival to get the vibe!
The Get Active programme focuses on young people getting active by taking part in activities and workshops that take place at the youth centres. These activities focus on improving health and well being, developing creativity and key skills. Regenerate offers a range of sport activities, cooking and creative art workshops which include the use of the music studio.
During School holiday’s we plan and organise trips to take young people away on all kinds of adventures visit places they haven’t been before such as climbing mountains in Snowdonia, Kayaking the thames, adventuring in the Surrey Hills, as well as the standard trip to Thorpe Park and the seaside.
Get Focused is Regenerate’s Mentoring programme for young people aged 11-18 who want some extra support. Our mentors meet with young people and listen to them, supporting them to understand themselves and grow in confidence and develop skills.Get Focused provides opportunities for one-to-one mentoring and group mentoring. We work in local primary and secondary schools as well as meet young people after school at our youth centres.
There are so many young people who are desperate for an opportunity for employment but just don’t know how to get a foot in the door. In 2014, we set up a social enterprise in the form of a sandwich business called ‘The Feel Good Bakery’ with the view to support, train and employ these young people. Our goal is to help them to develop life skills that prepare them for the workplace and a positive future. In 2020, we adapted our sandwich business due to the pandemic and launched two Feel Good coffee carts to create more employment opportunities for young people, and the opportunity to learn some new skills.

Get Leading is for young adults aged 18- 30 who want to make a difference in their community and grow as leaders. We have regular meeting and meals together where we meet leading influencers in social change, work towards volunteering trips to Kenya and Romania to work with our partners in grass roots communities there. We also host weekends away to focus on personal development and vision for the future.Back to Top
