Not only do we encourage integration within our own community and culture but we are also keen to learn and be inspired by the cultures and traditions we are exposed to daily by our wonderful clients at Oasis.
We have roughly 150 – 250 visitors daily, this includes people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali and Congo among many other countries. Some have just arrived in Cardiff whereas others have been here for a few years and visit Oasis to socialise with the many friends they have made here.
During the week our centre is open to refugees and asylum seekers, we run various women-only sessions and groups, art classes, English language classes, sports sessions, daily advisory sessions, advocacy forums, relaxation sessions, and the list goes on, oh and we provide free lunch every weekday and it’s always delicious!
Outside of our centre we aim to organise regular cultural and sports trips around Wales from museum and art gallery visits to sport team activities and mountain peak challenges.
To involve and engage our local and wider community with what we do and all of the amazing people we meet we run regular community events such as a monthly Supper Club with a dish from a different part of the world every month, as well as our monthly Oasis Cardiff Pop Up events where we serve global food that has been introduced to us by our culinarily talented clients. We also host two weekly community cinema clubs free for all!
