History of Oasis
In the London Borough of Greenwich, 4 Somali refugees with professional backgrounds sat together in the living room of a council flat in Woolwich. It was 1991. It was this meeting that prompted the launch of SORAG. Somali Refugee Action Group - a local community support group offering advice and guidance to recent refugee arrivals in the borough.
A single room office at the Clock House Community Centre was offered by the council to support SORAG in having a base for its service provision. Quickly leading to the recruitment of their first volunteer worker – Mohamed Yusuf, a graduate architect from Canterbury University.
By 1996, after becoming a registered UK Charity a Home Care service was established leading to a service contract being secured with Greenwich Council to support vulnerable elderly Somali people in the community.
In 2010 the name OASIS Care & Training Agency was chosen and adopted by its Trustees to reflect its growth and wider range of services beyond homecare provision, including vocational training for the unemployed and community support project work.
Today in 2020, OASIS is supporting over 800 members of the London community providing over 12,000 hours of home care per week. Its head office is based in the London Borough of Southwark and annual income is above £8.5 million per year.
And all this has been achieved because 4 compassionate people in 1991 wanted to do something to improve the quality of life for vulnerable people in their own community!
