Local, caring, reponsive

We are a completely independent charity that works solely on the Isle of Wight to improve the quality of life of local older people.


We are local, caring, and responsive. We’re here to help you, or someone you care about, whatever the situation.

The Good Neighbour Scheme has been chosen as one of the charities to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund, and you can help us maximise the funds raised through this amazing opportunity!

Strategic Direction 2017 to 2020

We are proud to publish our Strategic Direction for 2017 to 2020.  We thank everyone who helped to inform, shape and guide our strategy and priorities for the coming years.

We have a vision of an Island community where older people are respected, valued, included and able to live the life they choose.

Support your shed!

Our Men in Sheds project currently has 5 active sheds that are positively changing the lives of local older men across the Isle of Wight.  
We have an opportunity to open a 6th shed in a new location but we need your help to get it up and running.
