Who is the RISE Trust?

The RISE Trust started as an initiative from a local church in Chippenham in 2004. It supported work in the community in 3 areas: Under 5s, Youth and Seniors. In 2006 the RISE Trust became a charitable trust and continues today to serve our local community in Chippenham and young people across North Wiltshire.

The Aims of the Trust





The RISE Trust today

The RISE Trust is a significant force within family and children’s charity work in North Wiltshire. We are based at our Community Hub in The Oaks, Chippenham next door to St Paul’s Primary School.

The RISE Trust staff offer non-judgemental, impartial, friendly advice and we are always there for you!  We are building up sessions for children and their carers throughout the week.  The RISE Trust provides courses such as Baby Massage, ‘Chat, Chill & Connect’ (play sessions for parents and toddlers)  ‘Ready, Steady, School’ (for parents who have children starting school in September) and we also work in partnership with other agencies to provide access to other courses that would benefit your family.

In addition to our we run a Contact Centre in Chippenham, provide Youth Groups/support, a mentoring service to the Chippenham primary schools and have a Parent Support Advisor that goes into local primary schools.  Our pre-school @ The Oaks, provides high quality pre-school childcare and currently have an Ofsted rating of Good.

The aim of The RISE Trust is to that “Through unconditional love commitment and passion, we seek to enable all children, young people and adults to be the best that they can be”.
