Local Charity Partners

We are a proud and compassionate Island nation, by working together with our charity partners we can make sure that people in need are signposted to the appropriate services, support and guidance that they need.

Crossroads is an Isle of Man based charity that provides support to carers and people with care needs no matter their disability, age or illness. Established in 1988, they have been providing services to local carers for over 30 years.

Their services are about improving the lives of carers by giving them time to themselves and having a break from caring.  Their support workers take over the care responsibilities to create immediate and sustained respite giving carers time to be themselves away from their caring role.

The Manx Deaf Society aims to support Deaf, deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people on the Isle of Man.

The charity was founded in the 1920s.

Beach Buddies was founded in October 2006 when two people were walking the beach with their dogs at Kirk Michael on the west coast of the Isle of Man in the British Isles.

Until then, no one had any idea of the scale of the problem facing the Isle of Man. Within a few weeks two people had collected hundreds of bags of rubbish, some of the materials dating back as far as 30 years.

It was then clear that the Isle of Man had a massive problem with rubbish on its beautiful beaches. A decision was made – ‘It’s not enough to just stand and stare.
