The Oasis Project
What We Do
The Oasis Project has been providing a warm welcome to all since 2005.
We provide practical care and training, and emotional and spiritual support in a community cafe setting.
Helping people to build a future and bring hope to lives in crisis.
For lunch, clients can choose between different savory fillings in sandwiches and wraps, a soft drink or soda, and complete their meal with one of the delicious cakes, such as lemon drizzle, which are baked on the premises.
Daily ‘specials’ are advertised on a chalkboard.
Food can be eaten in the cafe, bought to take-away, or delivered to addresses in the surrounding area.
The ‘Tuesday Roast’ has become something of an institution in Stonehouse. For as little as £3.50, diners can enjoy a hot roast lunch in friendly surroundings.
