A foodbank can help feed a family, but if that family remains in debt, the problems continue. A teacher can provide a young person with a great curriculum, but how can that young person truly be expected to thrive under it if their housing needs are unfulfilled? A health care worker can teach someone how to look after themselves, but how effective will that be if that someone doesn’t believe they are worth caring for?
In an Oasis community hub, every service that is delivered – be it foodbank, Academy, youth group, community church – is fully integrated. Through this joined up approach, professionals and volunteers can work together to ensure that a person’s needs are met holistically and not in a vacuum.
