Manx Community Assistance

The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company (IOMSPC) is proud to have supported our community since 1830. It’s a tradition that continues to this day through a number of community and charitable focused support schemes.


IOMSPC has pledged to continue to provide Community Assistance to organisations whose aims are to

  1. improve the quality of life of Island residents or
  2. assist Island based or international charitable organisations or good causes.


 The level of assistance to each organisation and selection of which organisations to assist is at the sole discretion of IOMSPC.


You can find out more about the types of support IOMSPC offers below.

Supported Travel Requests

Being the Isle of Man’s lifeline ferry operator, IOMSPC regularly receives requests from local charitable organisations, clubs, schools and event organisers looking for support with their travel costs to/from the Isle of Man. We’re committed to providing our island community with support in many ways and regularly provide assistance where we can.

Applications for Supported Travel Requests are currently open for 2023 – you can download a request form here.

Supported Sports Scheme

Are you a talented sportsperson looking to compete in your sport further afield than the Isle of Man? IOMSPC provides a Supported Sports Scheme for locals who travel off-Island regularly to the UK and beyond to compete in their chosen sporting discipline. In order to qualify for the scheme and obtain the discounted rates applicable, those applying must complete six or more return trips from the Isle of Man within the calendar year to events in which they are competing at.

Applications for the Supported Sports Scheme for 2023 are now closed. New applications for 2024 will open  in Autumn 2023.
