Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation

We feel passionately about supporting local community groups within the area and to ensure that we can help in more ways we have set up the Red Funnel Travel Voucher Scheme.

Red Funnel in partnership with the Isle of Wight Community Foundation have established a scheme to support Isle of Wight voluntary and community groups by contributing towards travelling across the Solent on the vehicle ferries or Red Jets.

Those eligible include Isle of Wight and Hampshire based community and voluntary groups, including those that work with children, youth, senior and people with disabilities.

How to Apply

In order to apply and find out if your organisation is eligible for the travel voucher, you will need to go through a few steps:

Step 1: Email the Red Funnel Sales Team for a quote. Please esure you have your travel dates, times, passenger numbers and mode of transport included in your email.

Step 2: Once you have your quote, visit www.hiwcf.com and complete the short application form explaining why you are requesting support and attach your constitution, terms of reference or set of rules you use as a governing document.

Please ensure that you apply at least 4 weeks in advance of your planned travel dates. 

A maximum of £200 is available per organisation, per year.

Step 3: If your application is successful you will need to contact the Red Funnel Sales Team to book your ferry.

Please note: Priority will be given to groups supporting the vulnerable and disadvantaged. We are unable to offer support to individuals but local community groups can make an application on behalf of an individual, so we encourage those seeking support to contact a local community group with details of the scheme.
