The Oasis Centre opened in 2002 in Marsh Rd and then moved to St Augustines Ave in 2005. We are now very happy that our new home from March 1st 2021 will be at the Olive Branch in St Margarets Ave.
Pre-Lockdown Oasis was a place where women could come to get help with filling in forms, understanding official letters and where they could come to find help and friendship while their small children play in safety.
The Oasis Centre is a place of friendship, learning, safety and fun! This the daily group of our group of around 15 volunteers. Now in Lockdown much of this is happening over Zoom but, government guidance permitting, we hope we will soon be able to welcome people into our new home.
Luton is a town with many services set up to help the community but many in our communities don’t know how to access the help and information they need. Others don’t have the language skills or the confidence to be able to do this. Others are just looking for a place to belong and feel valued.
At the Oasis Centre we aim to equip those who have England as a second country or second language to feel they ‘fit’ into life in the U.K. Whether this is by equipping them in their use of English, helping them to find their way around town or encouraging their children with homework.
