The Island Haven
A place to stay in times of need
We are a registered charity fundraising to build and equip a place for the people of the Isles of Scilly to stay in times of need, when undergoing mainland medical treatment.
When islanders or visitors require medical care on the mainland, they may need a place to stay during prolonged outpatient treatment, or their family, friends, or carer may need a place to stay to accompany them.
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. In any case, during Cornwall’s main tourist season, accommodation can be impossible to find.
For some islanders, this has meant extended stays in costly guest accommodation, lengthy time on friends’ sofas, or even the prospect of not being able to be by their loved ones’ side when they need it most.
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)
