About Oasis Community Housing

Oasis Community Housing (OCH) are a homeless charity which was started in 1984 by students who wanted to support and help people who were homeless in Gateshead. They have grown over the last 35 years to provide supported accommodation across Gateshead, Southwark and Croydon.

At OCH, every member of staff and all clients are valued for who they are, embracing their individuality and uniqueness. Staff are dedicated and committed to providing the best possible service to clients, regularly going beyond what is expected of them.

OCH firmly believe the need to to treat their own team members with the same respect that they provide their clients. Staff are shown kindness and compassion when they are experiencing difficulties in either their personal or professional lives and as an organisation, they are as flexible as they can in supporting them.

On top of this, OCH also offer an occupational health service for staff which is used to provide advice on how the charity can best support staff with any health issues affecting either their attendance or work performance.
