Where we work

The map above shows Oasis’ 52 local Academies, 18 Community Hubs, Basis Drop-in Centres and supported housing projects.

Every Oasis community is different. But they all share a common goal of creating a place where everyone is included, and everyone can thrive. Most often our work is organised through integrated ‘Hubs’. The Oasis Hub model is the result of our experience in local communities that face disadvantage and poverty. Inequality impacts all areas of life, and change requires a joined-up and systemic response. So in every Oasis community we work with other charities, faith groups, and local authorities to provide joined-up, holistic care and opportunity to all – supporting community development, providing education, housing, advice and support, personal and spiritual development, health and wellbeing, and social action and campaigning.

North of England

There are six Oasis Community Hubs  in the North of England working alongside Oasis Academies (primary and secondary) and other partners in Salford, Oldham, Liverpool, Immingham, Scunthorpe and South Grimsby. We have several projects supporting homeless people in the North East. Basis, in Sunderland supports people sleeping rough while Elizabeth House and Naomi House in Gateshead provide accommodation for pregnant women and those with young babies as well as other women at risk of homelessness.

Oasis Hub Oldham

Based in the Hollinwood and Leesbrook communities of Oldham our vibrant Hub works with a wide network of organisations to provide a range of projects and activities designed to strengthen and empower our community.

We provide food projects, adult education, school holiday activities, community kitchen, farm and growing projects, advice and support, youth clubs, NEET interventions, mentoring and vulnerable family support.
