Our vision

A world free from abusive relationships where every person is safe at home and in their community

We believe in a just, fair and equal society.

Our mission

For family life to be free from abuse. We will keep working towards this and creating innovative responses to domestic abuse that increase safety, rebuild lives and create lasting change, for as long as it takes.

Oasis's goals and values

Our guiding principles shape the way we work.

They enable us to create positive safe futures for people affected by domestic abuse on every step of the journey from crisis to recovery and healing.


To save lives, now and in the future: We provide needs-led, risk-focused services that promote safety and build resilience. We work with young people to prevent abuse through education and mentoring.

To champion the needs of people affected by abuse: We keep the people we help at the heart of all we do. We ensure that their voice is heard and their safety is paramount, as well as working to highlight the injustices they face.

To empower people affected by abuse: We empower people who use our services through strengths and solutions-focused support. Later in their journey, we help them through our volunteer programmes that offer skills, confidence and friendship.

To listen and learn: We know that good ideas can come from anyone at any time. We are committed to listening and learning from our service users, our colleagues and our partners.

Be positive and proactive: We believe that we can and do save lives, that we have and will change lives. We believe that breaking the cycle of violence and abuse is possible.


Compassionate: We provide compassionate support to people in need, no matter who they are or what situation they find themselves in. We are always here to listen and help without judgement

Curious: We undertake research and development to ensure our services continue to be innovative, effective and efficient. We are always looking for ways to do what we do better, using trauma-informed data and practice.

Committed: We are committed to providing the best level of support. We find new ways of support and forge new partnerships to help end the cycle of abuse.

Collaborative: We are generous with our expertise, our tools and our time. We believe in working with families, professionals and agencies to create stronger and more resilient communities.

Connected: We connect with individuals, organisations and services in meaningful ways. This is to ensure that we are providing the highest level of service and support. We adopt a multi-agency, holistic approach to the work that we do.
