Wightlink Community Sponsorship

Every year Wightlink sponsors a number of sporting teams and arts organisations with discounted travel which help make life on the Isle of Wight vibrant and varied.

Our primary objective for community sponsorship is to enhance the quality of life on the Isle of Wight, particularly for young people (under the age of 18), by providing travel benefits.

Consideration will be given to youth sporting teams or organisations that support youth development on the Isle of Wight – to encourage participation, help them excel and, where applicable, travel to the mainland to compete or perform at events.

How to apply

Applications for 2018/19 are now closed and will re-open on 1 November 2019. Please check back later in the year for details.

Wightlink’s next community sponsorship scheme will cover the period 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020. We understand that not all sporting teams’ seasons tie into this period and will take this into consideration.

Individual athletes and performers

Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications from individuals.

However, we are delighted to continue to support the Isle of Wight Council’s Talented Athlete Scheme and requests for individual athlete sponsorship must be made directly to the council’s sports unit on 01983 823818 or email sports.unit@iow.gov.uk.
