Community

At Oasis we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected.  To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs.

As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive.  We call our model for these communities ‘hub.’  Watch the video above to learn more about our vision for hub.

Oasis Mayfield Community Hub

The overall aim of an Oasis Hub is to recognise that individual and community health flows from wholeness - that people and communities have a wide range of needs - including social, physical, educational, emotional, environmental, vocational and spiritual needs.

The aims of an Oasis Hub will therefore include:

Building a stronger sense of community, transforming it into environment where people - including families - feel safe, happy and proud to live, learn and work alongside one another.

Creating opportunities for local people to get involved in shaping the work and buying into delivering the change itself.

Encouraging volunteering at every level of operation.

Stimulating a local culture of enterprise and self-help.

Raising aspirations including educational and employment opportunities.

Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.

Encouraging an environment where the private and public sector work in deeper partnership.
