Hospice Isle of Man and mental health charity Isle Listen announce an exciting new collaboration which will commence from September 11th 2023.
The collaboration will see Isle Listen relocate its therapeutic suite and services to a space within the Scholl Wellbeing Centre at Hospice Isle of Man, adjacent to Nobles Hospital.
The timely collaboration comes at a point when Isle Listen has a need for a larger, better-equipped environment for its therapeutic team.
This important partnership demonstrates that the two significant charitable service providers both take their responsibility to the public very seriously, by using donated funds in the most efficient way for the delivery of essential services. This represents just that step change within the third sector.
New CEO of Hospice, John Knight said;
“Thanks to the ongoing support of the Manx public, Hospice has world class facilities not only in patient facing areas but also in the amount and design of administration space.
We are excited that, due to internal streamlining, Hospice now has some capacity in the existing building for the Isle Listen charity to join us. Both charities will benefit from the move, and will bring so many opportunities to them.”
Andrea Chambers, CEO of Isle Listen said;
“This innovative collaboration demonstrates how two important Manx charities can work together, using their funds in the best possible way, and ensuring the best value for money to the Manx public as well as the best possible experience for the many people using our services.
Our charity Head Office will remain in Castletown but the excellent space available within the Scholl Wellbeing Centre offers us much-needed extra therapeutic space. We started operating as Isle Listen from Skanco Court in Douglas, but we have outgrown the lovely space there and look forward to continuing the Isle Listen journey alongside the amazing team at Hospice.”
No service provided by either organisation will be negatively impacted, indeed the clear intention behind the move is that they will only improve through partnership working.
This is an exciting time for both Hospice and Isle Listen.
