  1. Diverse Activities: From thrilling adventures like tree climbing and wellbeing walks to relaxed gatherings such as games afternoons and film nights, we offer a wide range of activities that cater to different interests


  1.  Community Engagement: We actively participate in events like beach cleans and collaborate with organizations like UKSA and surfers against sewage to make a positive impact on the Isle of Wight.
  2.  Fundraising: We’re dedicated to supporting the Youth Trust, and our fundraising activities help fund essential mental health services for young people.


  1. Youth Voice: We believe in the power of your voice. Our taskforce members have appeared on the BBC and met with influential figures like Bob Seeley to address issues affecting young people on the Isle of Wight.
