At Oasis, we are united by two core beliefs: that every human being is of equal worth and that each of us can only flourish when we are part of a thriving community. We have a radical and genuinely distinctive vision of community, seeking to reconnect people to each other and to the services they need. Motivated by the life, message and example of Jesus, we are committed to Inclusion, equality, healthy relationships, hope and perseverance and this permeates all aspects of the life and culture of our Hubs.


Healthy Relationships

Essential services can give people crucial support in daily life – but truly strong communities are built on the foundation of healthy relationships and people’s character.  Our hub model seeks to bring people closer, forging a strong sense to community identity.  In everything we do, we also look to embed the principles of strong character in ourselves and everyone we work with.  These principles are based on the Oasis 9 habits.
