Here at Oasis we build hubs.
We believe that it is only when we invest in a whole community that we can expect to have an impact in the lives of its most desperate and needy members. That's why we're working to create a new sense of 'village', a new sense of belonging and interdependency; hubs.
There isn't a blueprint for what a hub looks like or even what it does; they can be different in each location. Some of our hubs have gyms, others cafes and restaurants. They support local business, run FoodBanks and provide debt advice, they run schools and youth groups and they engage with local politicians. A hub responds to the needs of its community and provides a space where every person can feel safe a familiar.
Since 2004 when we began to realise the Oasis Hub vision: to build, restore and transform entire communities, we have have developed 13 across the UK.
