We are working to ensure that children on the Isle of Wight are supported to get the best start in life that will lead to good health and wellbeing. This will provide the foundation to ensure they are able to achieve the best opportunities and keep as healthy and well as possible throughout their lives.
We want to ensure that families, individuals and communities are thriving and resilient with access to good jobs, affordable housing, leisure activities, lifelong training, education and learning, health and care services are are able to enjoy the place in which they live.
We want to ensure that people on the Isle of Wight are able to live independently in their own homes with appropriate care support. We want to make sure older residents are supported to play an active role in their communities and supported to maintain and develop their social and community networks.
Each year we hold an Annual General Meeting to look back on the Trust’s performance, our challenges and achievements.
At the AGM, we formally adopt the Annual Report and Accounts of the preceding financial year.
It also provides a good opportunity to engage with our staff, stakeholders and the wider community.
This year’s theme is the Power of Partnerships and our AGM heard from a range of speakers talking about exciting and interesting work.
Our digital marketplace gives you the chance to explore the AGM, the presentations that took place and to learn a bit about the stalls that were open to the public on the day.
I am grateful to the many people I’ve met since joining the Trust for the warm welcome. It is a special organisation, with many challenges it’s true, but our teams are full of energy, expertise and they continue to improve and innovate.
It was another busy year for the NHS. Demand for our services remains high and in many of our services it is still rising, the people requiring our support need more of it, the gaps in our workforce are growing and the financial environment continues to challenge providers across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and the whole country.
You might think that all that sounds like a full plate. And you’d be right. But our teams are also working extremely hard to transform services and make them sustainable.
