Volunteers are the life-blood of the Oasis community - without them, we simply couldn't do what we do.
Volunteering at Oasis Hub Waterloo is a chance to gain valuable work experience, learn new skills, meet new people and contribute to the life of the community. There are a wide variety of opportunities, whether it's an hour on Sunday, an entire day during the week, an evening project or something you can do at home -- see below for our weekly volunteering calendar, and if you'd like to know more about how to get involved, please email us.
