We think that working together with other organisations, voluntary groups and care providers is the most effective and holistic approach to getting things done.
Layla's Trust works with many other organisations on the Isle of Wight and further afield to ensure there is a whole team to support families who are in need.
For a few years we awarded a grant to assist Rainbow Trust in delivering their services to Island families. Having identified a need for better support in the home, we contacted Rainbow Trust back in 2012 to ask them to offer their services on the island. Between 2017 and 2019 we gifted them £12,000 and a further £14,000 respectively, to enable Rainbow Trust to support families in their own homes on the Isle of Wight. They offered practical and emotional support where they could and we felt their involvement was invaluable to the families they supported. We were excited about working with such an amazing charity and had hoped that we would continue with our collaborative effort that benefited so many island families. However, despite the overall success of the program, Rainbow Trust were unable to continue their work on the island once our grant term had ended and the trial was shut down in 2019.
We work with a number of other charitable organisations, supporting them directly with grants and signposting to other organisations so to help provide a more holistic approach to charitable support on the island.
