Wightlink in the Community

Part of Island life

As your link between the Isle of Wight and the mainland, we want to enrich life on the Island as much as possible.

That means protecting the environment with our Green Solent Project. It means giving young sporting stars the help they need to reach the next level. And it means supporting some of the fantastic Island charities that touch so many lives.

Follow the links below to find out more about our community, engagement and sustainable projects.


Each year, we sponsor a range of sporting teams and arts organisations with discounted travel, particularly focusing on organisations that support youth development on the Isle of Wight.

Find out if your team can apply for Wightlink sponsorship.

Island Link Forum

The Island Link Forum is your opportunity to talk directly to us at in-person events, three times a year. The sessions are designed as open discussions, with the ultimate aim of further improving the service we offer.

Find out when the next Forum will take place and express your interest in attending.
