The Oasis Community Housing 'Faith In Action' campaign documentary sets out to show the huge impact Oasis had on people who have used their service, specifically in the charity's South London base.
Community leaders Faith Child and Rowena Bent take us to meet to people who have struggled with homelessness in the past and bounced back with help from Oasis. The charity not only provides safe places for people facing homelessness to stay, with warmth, food and comfort, they also help people learn skills that will allow them to bounce back in life.
Our hope for this documentary is that it raises awareness for all the incredible work that Oasis does, letting people know that they can find support when facing struggles with homelessness.
We are a Christian homelessness charity. We exist to reignite hope and a future for everyone facing homelessness. We help more than 1,000 people every year by providing housing and support and, more fundamentally, a place where they feel they can belong.
Working across North East England and south London, we address both immediate needs and the root causes of homelessness through our four cornerstones of support: our Basis crisis services; our Home 24/7 supported housing; our Empower programme for women escaping domestic abuse and Aspire unemployment support and financial skills training.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do and are based on Christian principles, staying true to the mission that the group of students, who founded the charity, set out for us almost 40 years ago:
“No, this is the kind of fasting I want:
Free those who are wrongly imprisoned;
lighten the burden of those who work for you.
Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people.
Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless.”
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
