We are launching this page as part of our Shhhhh Can you keep a secret? Campaign. We would like to help 50 families have a special Christmas this year and for them to receive a festive hamper along with a Family Christmas Eve box.
We are hoping that this Crowdfunder will allow us to raise much need funds to uplift the food element of our work. Both our family support and youth workers will then have the ability to continue to support families over the festive period. So many families have found themselves without food due to crisis, or change in circumstance such as furlough, loss of work, domestic violence. We don’t want to provide one off support but rather build relationship and support families to be resilient in the current climate and know that they are now alone.
We will work with around 50 families and young people to provide support, as many are isolated and do not work or have support networks locally. We are also able to tailor our support to the needs of the individual and we will work with them in the best way for them. Communities are not changed over night but through building relationships.
These families often have limited support networks around them both within the home and the community and so we provide a holistic approach working with families and young people to raise aspiration and provide positive activities as well as early intervention work with families to limit Adverse Childhood Experiences that affect children and young people
"I love the Oasis Hub. You all do a great job and I am for ever grateful for your help and support for me and my family in the last 8 months. It can be hard sometimes with an ill child but I always know you are there for me when I struggle for food or even just need a chat, so thank you"
