Isle of Wight Youth Trust

The Isle of Wight Youth Trust is a local charity dedicated to supporting children and young people on the Isle of Wight.

The charity was formed in 1984 by the late Dr Christine Baksi to provide support for under-25s whose needs were not being met by the services of the time.

They are an independent organisation made up of a professional and passionate team dedicated to creating the best outcomes for the children and young people on the Isle of Wight.
