The Ardwhallan Jubilee Trust provides high quality, inspirational and empowering education that realises the potential of all young people through adventure. Ardwhallan believes that there is an adventure out there for every young person. We work closely with youth organisations on the Island, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Youth Service, Scouts, Guiding, and many others. Our own volunteer youth leader programme is key to our work with other organisations, enabling us to offer a greater number of opportunities to groups on the Isle of Man as well as developing the young leader’s personal attributes. We also work with school groups to enhance their curriculum at both senior and primary level.

We offer programmes to disadvantaged and disillusioned young people using the outdoors as direct and transferable learning to real life situations. The Charity has been working with young people for over 40 years and maintains a purpose built classroom, changing facilities, a replica Viking Longhouse and extensive ground and water activities, as well as a 30 bed Hostel which offers affordable residential experiences for island and visiting youth groups.

Founded in 1998 by Don and Ali Westacott in fond memory of the Princess, the Diana Princess of Wales Care at Home Trust funds nursing staff to provide respite care and end-of-life palliative care for Island residents with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses where curative treatment is no longer possible or appropriate who choose to remain at home in their last days; in effect, to provide a ‘Hospice at Home’ service.

Hospice at Home is the delivery of hospice care at home. This includes the values and philosophy of care provided in an in-patient hospice setting to both patients and their families at the end stages of life but who’d prefer to be cared for in their own homes with all that is familiar about them.

The aim is to provide high quality nursing care and support to the individual patient, the family, friends and carers. Since 2012, the number of hours of care delivered annually has increased from 714 hours to 2,305 hours during 2016. The year started with 8 patients on the caseload and throughout the year the service received 47 new referrals, a 32% increase in hours delivered compared to 2015, with 1,348 hours provided during the day and 957 hours at night. Our Honorary Trustees are highly committed to helping others and making a difference to their lives and all funds raised are spent on the Island.

St John Ambulance Isle of Man are a leading first aid charity with 272 members including 175 Adult and 97 Youth members including Badgers (5-10 years) and Cadets (11-17 years).

Our first aid services are relied upon at a wide range of events every year. We are on hand at events across the island, from major sporting events such as TT and Manx Festival of Motorcycling, Isle of Man Youth Games, International Car Rally and Cycle Events to music festivals, carnivals, exhibitions, shows, fun days and fairs.

We have an expanding team of community first responders who are trained to assess the situation, providing immediate first aid if needed, and establish the patient’s previous medical history. Sometimes they can simply be a very vital second pair of hands to an ambulance crew when they arrive. We also run regular commercial first aid courses, the profit from which is used to support our volunteer activity. We also rely on public donations but receive no government funding.
