The COVID-19 Crisis has hit most of us hard, but for many in our community the challenges they face have become insurmountable. No child deserves to go hungry during this global crisis and no child should feel alone. Help us provide emergency food packages and home activities for vulnerable and isolated families across Ordsall, Langworthy and the wider Salford community.
WHO WE ARE
At Oasis Community Hub: MediaCityUK we are passionate about building community and transforming lives. Through our Community Hub we provide vital community activities, youth opportunities, family support and holiday activities for children and adults across Ordsall, Langworthy and the wider Salford community.
During a normal week this would all take place face to face in our welcoming community hub space where building positive relationships is paramount to our work.
Since mid-March this year, the way we work has changed dramatically and our work, although now different, has never been more important. We have been part of the response, with our incredible Community Hub Team working tirelessly, delivering weekly food parcels including 80 freshly cooked meals and visiting homes to ensure that our children are safe.
As the weeks roll on when families are socially-isolated we are also aiming to provide a wide range of online support work and activities so that our community continues to feel connected and supported during this unprecedented time.
Our team have already made an incredible impact, but with growing economic uncertainty and a reduction in donations, we need your help to continue delivering these vital services.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
At a time of social distancing, donating on this page is the easiest way for you to support those in need. Help us with our Crowdfunder so we can ensure no-one in our local community goes hungry or feels isolated at this time of crisis.
Any amount donated will make a difference to our community and will all be put directly into supporting our families. To give an idea of the amounts that really help:
- £2 would provide a meal for one child
- £15 will feed a child for an entire week
- £30 will keep a family in necessary supplies for a week
- £50 funds four one hour sessions with struggling families, children and vulnerable adults helping them access support and providing critical advice and advocacy
- £100 funds an entire day's worth of vital interventions assisting children struggling through the current crisis with one-to-one, and peer-led mentoring, mental health and wellbeing advice and guidance, and online activities.
Please support however you can by donating whatever you can. Thank you.
