Our History

Oasis has been delivering services to people experiencing domestic abuse in Kent for 22 years. Our charity began with a handful of dedicated people opening a refuge service in 1994. Back then 2 women a week were being murdered as a result of abuse in the home. Sadly that statistic remains the same today. Every day our staff are confronted with the distressing results of this issue on the lives of the adults and children whom we work for. 

Today Oasis delivers services to adults and children both in refuge and in the community and we are building a dedicated approach to not only intervening, but also preventing these issues in the future. We would like to see an end to the issue which we work for, and every child we teach about healthy relationships may be a step closer to this aim. 

We are overwhelmed by the support we receive from the community and are glad to see that word of mouth about our work often precedes us. Throughout our history we have striven to end not only the consequences but also the causes of domestic abuse and with your continued support we will do so until the violence stops.
