Story

Now more than ever families are suffering from acute stress. Many are escaping abusive situations; many are struggling with parenthood; many are suffering or recovering from addiction. Many more are simply unable to cope as the cost of living goes up and up, throwing them the desperate choice: heat or eat.

Oasis is just that: a safe haven where families in Elmbridge and the surrounding areas can come for vital support, for counselling, for their emotional wellbeing. A place where young children can play freely in our nursery. A place where families can regain their self-confidence, their resilience, their independence and self-esteem - tools that help them rebuild their lives; tools that help them navigate and withstand future challenges; tools that help keep them together as a strong and happy family unit.

Oasis doesn't receive statutory funding. Every single contribution is so greatly appreciated, helping us to continue our vital support to families in need.

Heat or Eat shouldn't be a choice families have to make. Now more than ever, our services are in greater demand. This Christmas, many families will be forced to go without. Just like previous years, we'd like to spread a little Christmas cheer, and deliver food hampers and gifts to the families under the umbrella of our support.

Caroline Edwards, Founder, Oasis.
