He enjoys working with dedicated team and notes that “the most satisfying aspect of my work is the ability to make a difference to the lives of elderly and most vulnerable people in the community”.
Ms. Pam Thompson, Services & Office Director
Pam Thompson is Services and Office Director and manages all administrative aspects of the organisation.

Ms. Mariam Mashood, Senior Care Manager
Ms Mashood joined Oasis in 2009 as a Care Manager. After completing her NVQ Level IV and the Registered Care Manager Award in 2002, she decided to change direction from residential care which she had done for more than 14 years. Ms Mashood got experience working with people with Learning Disabilities/ Sensory Impairment, Mental Health difficulties and Older People. Her remits range from day to day dealings with local authorities’ enquiries to customer services and care coordination. As services are slowly moving towards the Personalisation Agenda her role also includes dealing with referrals for individualised budget and ensuring that controls and safeguards are in place for Oasis customers. She feels that “the new transition challenges the traditional ways in which care service have been provided”.

He sees a brighter future for the organisation and says that “I am excited about the future for Oasis and look forward tackling challenges and embracing opportunities”.
