Platt Christian Centre welcomes new ownership

Livability is pleased to announce that Regenerate-RISE, the Christian charity that supports the elderly and isolated, has become the proud owner of the Platt Centre, after more than a decade as a tenant.

Sally Chivers, Livability CEO, says: ‘For many years, Livability made the Platt Centre in Putney, south London, available to Regenerate-RISE on a no-cost basis, enabling them to deliver their valuable services to the community. I am thrilled that in such trying times, they have been able to take up full ownership and continue to serve the community.’

The sale of the Platt Centre will help sustain Livability’s core vital services, supporting adults, children, and young people with disabilities through its care services, special education and rehabilitation centres across the UK.

Chair of Livability Kate Clare says: ‘Regenerate-RISE provides an excellent service to the community. It has been our hope that they would be able to raise funds to purchase the building and I am delighted that this has proven to be the case.’
