About Oasis

Oasis has a radical and genuinely distinctive vision of community, seeking to reconnect people to each other and to the services they need. 

That vision is built around the concept of community hubs: the joining together of all the ways in which Oasis exists and acts within a community – the church, school and all the joined-up community services we provide.

In the UK, Oasis works across 35 hubs. We are the second largest multi-academy trust in the UK, with 47 schools serving 25,000 children and their families. Within those same communities, we run a wide range of community development initiatives, including youth and children’s work, adult education, foodbanks, health and wellbeing programmes, housing initiatives, community farms and a great deal more.

About the Oasis Foundation

The Oasis Foundation is the new research and policy unit of the Oasis group of charities and social enterprises. 

The Oasis Foundation is our opportunity to give back some of our thirty years of learning in church-led social action, to help inform public policy and to encourage replication of what we and others have found to work.

The Foundation's initial areas of policy focus are:

The role of the Church in public service delivery 

Radicalisation and gang culture 

Sexuality and inclusion

The UK's response to child refugees



Our Theology and Ethos

Oasis is inspired and motivated by the life, teaching and example of Jesus. It informs our radically inclusive ethos and drives our passionate belief that each human being is equally important, has intrinsic God-given worth and is uniquely valuable.

We hope that our five ethos values (or behaviours) of inclusion, relationships, equality, hope and perseverance permeate everything we do and are obvious wherever and whenever you encounter Oasis.

Inclusion: a passion to include everyone

Relationships: a desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences

Equality: a commitment to healthy and open relationships

Hope: a deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed

Perseverance: a sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul
