The Oasis Centre is a lifeline to over 150 people a week including homeless people, those struggling with addiction or mental illness, ex-offenders, refugees and asylum seekers, families living on benefits and long-term unemployed. Our day centre offers; emergency food and clothing, crisis support, a free café offering hot meals, low-cost charity shop, education, work skills club, group and leisure activities, volunteer placement scheme and careers advice.

Our essential services will be vital to even more people in need due to the effect of the pandemic.
