Support Oasis this Christmas

Room at the Refuge Appeal:

The Oasis Refuge will be home for the many women and Children staying with us this Christmas. We go to great efforts to make things festive however, some of the rooms are in need of an upgrade.

Can you help?

We'd like to appeal for donations to allow us to spruce up some of the rooms and give the women and children the comfort they deserve and a fresh space to heal.

If you are able to make a donation, big or small, please use the donate button above or send your donation to PO Box 174, Margate, CT9 4GA.

Cheques can be made payable to 'Oasis Domestic Abuse Service'. To receive acknowledgement please include a note of your contact details.

Read about Christmas in the Refuge


What is Christmas like for people in our refuge?

Melissa told us about her experience of spending Christmas at our refuge, decorating and cooking Christmas dinner for 18.


Lynda moved out of the refuge a week before Christmas

Our flat had nothing, no furniture, no pots or pans and no Christmas tree. But everyone at Oasis really pulled out the stops for me.


Please let us know if you would like to contribute in a different way by emailing


Thank you for your support. You help make people safer.

People need a room at the refuge all year round. Our CEO Deb Cartwright shared a memory of helping a woman who had just moved in.

“I once took a woman into the boutique upstairs and we started getting her a wardrobe of clothes together (she had been living on the street and had nothing). She broke down and cried saying, ‘This must be what Christmas feels like, no-one has ever given me anything so nice before.’
— Oasis CEO, Deb Cartwright
