Children who live in vulnerable family situations are often the ones who suffer most. They are also the ones with the least power to change the environment they live in.

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.

Oasis is fantastic, I love every moment being there. My son loves everything at Oasis too, the staff have been outstanding with any problems we have had and helped with my son’s learning and behaviour.
