Red Funnel Travel Voucher Scheme – Bridging Communities Red Funnel has established a transport support scheme to support voluntary and community groups based on the Isle of Wight or in Hampshire, travelling to the other. The Red Funnel Travel Support Scheme helps groups by contributing towards travelling across the Solent on Red Funnel vehicle ferries and Red Jet services. Voluntary groups, schools and community groups which support children, youth, seniors and people with disabilities can apply to the fund. The fund does not offer raffle prizes and is unable to offer direct support to individuals, but community and voluntary groups can make an application on behalf of an individual; so we encourage individuals to contact a local group if they require travel support. Applicants MUST apply at least 4 weeks in advance of their planned travel dates.  

NB: Only one voucher of up to £300 is available to any one organisation per year. Due to the increasing demand from groups across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and the desire to support as many groups as possible the following changes have been made to the criteria:

  • Groups will need to provide 50% match-funding for their trip
  • Grants are available up to £300
  • Priority will be given to groups supporting the vulnerable and disadvantaged
