What we do
At Oasis our goal is to keep children out of the social care system and with their own families.
To do this, we work closely with schools, GPs, Children’s Services and the families themselves to find solutions to the problems people in our community face and provide services that address them.
By working with the whole family, we are able to provide the support parents need to create a stable and secure environment for their children.
Together we can help more local children
As a registered charity, we rely on the help, support and generosity of people in our community. Find out how you can support us and make a difference to a family in need.
