Islanders from the Isles of Scilly often require medical treatment on the mainland, ranging from routine appointments to cancer care and pregnancy checkups.
When islanders require mainland care they need a place to stay during prolonged treatment, or their family, friends or carer may need a place to stay to accompany them. This could happen to visitors too.
The need for islanders to pay for hotels, guesthouses or B&B accommodation impacts family life, finances and general wellbeing at a time when stability is needed most. During the main season, accommodation can be virtually impossible to find.
Island Haven will fundraise to acquire and equip a property on the mainland that can be a “home from home” for islanders, providing much-needed accommodation.
The Island Haven (Treliske) is a Registered Charity with the Charity Commission (Charity Number 1187928)
