What we do

Residential Homes

Wightoak Youth delivers a bespoke residential service for Post 16 young people who are often, but not always, Care-Experienced. We aim to guide and support Young People on their journey away from the challenges, toward a more positive and fulfilled future.

All Wightoak Youth Services homes provide comfortable and homely accommodation, which promotes social and emotional integration. They also benefit from good transport links via car and public transport and ferry, fast cat and hover links are all within easy reach facilitating mainland appointments as well as time with family and friends. Locality Risk Assessments are available for each location on demand.

Complex Needs Home

Located in the idyllic countryside of the Isle of Wight, the farmhouse is set on grounds of 4.5 acres including equestrian facilities,an orchard, allotment, and a large fishing lake. There are 4 beds available to young people aged between 16-25, who have more complex needs and would benefit from greater support and intervention. The quiet, calming natural setting is an ideal environment to support good mental health, and there is ample opportunity to embrace outdoor life and positive well-being.

So very happy to help at what can be a difficult time of year for some 💛We (very gratefully!) accept donations all year around - drop us a message if you have any unwanted, sealed toiletries to donate. Our Hygiene Bank Amazon Wishlist is also linked in our Bio. #hygienepoverty #hygienebank #payingitforwardWhat an absolutely stunning donation from Wightoak Youth today 💛 a whopping 33kg of essential hygiene products donated by their staff and partners. This will all be packed up and moved on to our community partners just in time for Christmas. We have had so many requests for support lately but we are still running with minimal volunteers so we just can't reach those that we really want to. If you would like to volunteer or just find out how you could help our community do drop us a message. A simple way of helping could be making a donation to any of our Boots stores on the island, just look for thw big yellow box. Again, many thanks to Wightoak Youth, you really are little Christmas elves ... See MoreSee Less

November’s Wellbeing Challenge has been all about food. We put a nutrition and food quiz up for our Young People and can finally reveal the answers! 1. How many calories does a moderately active female 18-year-old need each day? A: 2200 to 2400 2. And how many does a moderately active male 18-year-old need each day? A: 2800 – 3200 - odd that men need so many more calories than woman, isn't it? 3. How long does food take to go right through your body? A: 24 – 72 hours - but it depends on a lot of things, like how much fluid you drink. 4. Omega-3 is found in oily fish like salmon and mackerel, and certain nuts and seeds. Why is it so valuable? A: It is good for the brain! 5. The pie chart shows the ideal balance of different types of food. What is the main nutrition we get from the GREEN section? A: Vitamins - fruit and veg provide crucial vitamins, but a lot more besides, so like a lot of nutritional know-how, it IS more complicated. 6. These are four good ways to get your carbohydrates. Fibre is also important – which of them has the most fibre? (pasta, potato, bread and rice) A: Baked potato is super cheap, super easy and gives you crucial fibre as well as those important carbs! 7. These sources of protein are cheaper than meat. Put them in order of which has the most protein per 100 grams. (Peas, cheese, eggs and beans) A: Cheese, egg, baked beans and peas. There are so many ways to get protein - and variety is good 8. What is best to eat before and after exercise? A: Carbohydrates before, and protein afterwards - but this is also more complicated. Carbs a couple of hours before exercise, and protein shortly after, but snacks should usually have a balance. 9. What goes out of date fastest in the fridge? (Chicken, beef, sausage rolls, cooked ham) A: Raw chicken only lasts a few days in the fridge. Cooked meat lasts longer. 10. What has the most sugar? (can of coke, coffee with 3 sugars, a can of redbull) A: A can of Coke has 35g of sugar - that's about NINE teaspoons!What healthy food choices are you going to make today? #nutriousnovember #healthyfoodchoices #healthiswealth ...
