Vectis and the Community

At Southern Vectis, we’re proud to support our local community.

As well as providing regular and sustainable bus services connecting the Isle of Wight, we also see it as our responsibility to support and connect our Island communities, charities and valuable causes.

We take greener travel and preservation of the Island seriously, regularly updating our fleet with new greener and cleaner innovations and spreading the word about the benefits of bus travel on air pollution and the environment.

Together we are a small but strong Island community doing big things, and as a company we understand that to make things happen, local groups and charities need our support.

Every year we’ve been quietly donating buses, money, travel and resource to those who need it, to help keep the Island a well-connected, supportive and inclusive place to live for all – particularly for vulnerable people and families, local children and the elderly.

We’re also keen supporters of local events that make our Island a unique and vibrant place to live, bringing the community together.

To make this funding fairer and available to groups who have not yet benefited from our support, we’re launching our Community Fund. 

"As an established member of the Isle of Wight community, we are always looking for ways to support local schools, clubs and societies, and our Community Funding is the perfect opportunity for us to do just that." - Richard Tyldsley, General Manager.
