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.

From Tuesday 1 August there will be a number of ward and department moves taking place across St Mary’s Hospital.
These moves are to support a programme of work that will see major improvements to the environment on our community unit, Laidlaw.
As part of the refurbishment works some of our wards will be relocated to help accommodate our Community Laidlaw patients whilst work gets underway.
On Tuesday 1 August patients in Compton Ward will be relocated to Newchurch Ward, located in the North Hospital Level B next to St Helen's Ward.
Patients on the Community Unit (previously known as Laidlaw) will then be transferred to the newly vacated Compton Ward, also in the North Hospital.
In addition to these moves Wellow Unit will now also be relocated from its current location in the Stroke Ward to the relocated with the Community Unit to the newly vacated Compton Ward.
If you need any way finding support please speak to one of our friendly volunteers in orange uniform or a member of our reception team.
