Whiteley Bank is the home of the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary. The Donkey Sanctuary was established in 1987 to provide a safe home for donkeys in distress. It currently houses about 200 animals. It was originally in Newport but had to be moved to Whiteley Bank to accommodate more animals.[2][3] America Wood is a SSSI located between Whiteley Bank and Shanklin.

It is served by Southern Vectis buses on routes 2 and 3.[4] There is also a public telephone. Whiteley Bank House is a nursing home in Whiteley Bank.
