We’re delighted to have been presented with a Shared Value Award by local homelessness charity Oasis Community Housing, at its flagship Black & Gold Ball fundraiser.
The award is in recognition of the support the charity has received over the past 12 months from us and celebrates the success of our corporate partnership.
Oasis Community Housing’s Chief Executive, David Smith, said: “Our Shared Value Awards recognise those businesses that go above and beyond in support of our charity. Every year we deliver help, housing and, moreover, a place people feel they belong through our drop-ins, emergency accommodation and supported accommodation projects.
“We could not deliver what we do without the generous support of our valued corporate partners and the dedicated individuals within these businesses.”
For almost 40 years, Oasis Community Housing has been supporting people facing homelessness across North East England and South London. The charity works to address both immediate needs and the root causes of homelessness through its Basis crisis services; its Home 24/7 supported accommodations for young men, women, and mothers and babies; its Aspire unemployment support and financial skills training; and Empower programme for women escaping domestic abuse.
The charity’s Patron, the BBC’s Reverend Canon Kate Bottley, presented us with our Shared Value Award at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead on Friday 20 May.
Commenting on receiving the Award, Senior Partner Hugh Welch said: “We’ve worked closely with Oasis Community Housing for a number of years and are grateful for the work they do in our local community to help to raise critical funds and awareness of homelessness.
“Once again, we’re proud to support this wonderful charity through our corporate partnership and are delighted to receive their Shared Value Award.”
