If we didn't know it before, the last 18 months have shown us that we all need community, so that we can thrive. Oasis works in 40 local neighbourhoods in the UK, building long-term, long-lasting change. We believe every local community deserves great schools, good housing, opportunities for young people, support for families, and a safety net of neighbours, kindness, and specialist help for when life is hard. We work to build community - around our 53 Academy schools, housing projects, and community initiatives.
A gift to Oasis will help launch a debt advice centre, run a holiday club, stock up a food bank, sponsor a mentor for a young person, provide employability support, pay for a counselling session ... and so much more.
Last year we worked with 30,000 students in our schools, and nearly 25,000 people in our community projects, all in communities facing disadvantage and inequality. We supported 7,500 young people outside of school, and ran 600 pathway to work projects. We provided essentials to 26,000 people facing food insecurity, and worked in-depth with more than 300 families to get out of debt or crisis. More than all of that, we built relationships, networks, and hope. It doesn't just take a village, it takes a whole community - working together for social change, justice, and opportunity for all.
