A Lifeline For The People Of East Manchester
The Oasis Centre is a community project which works with a broad cross-section of vulnerable and disadvantaged adults in Gorton, East Manchester. This is one of the most deprived communities in Britain.
The Oasis Centre is a lifeline for over 100 people a week including families living on benefits, the long-term unemployed, asylum seekers and refugees, homeless people, ex-offenders and those struggling with addiction problems or mental illness.
In 2015, we won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of our life-changing work.
Helping People Move... From Chaos to Stability
Since 2001, over 3,000 individuals and 1,000 families have benefitted from our help, often beginning with a chat and a hot meal.
From Isolation to Inclusion
We act as a vital ‘first rung on the ladder’ for the most disadvantaged people and a safe way to access mainstream support services.
For those who are ready, we offer basic skills courses and a tailored programme to prepare them for employment.
