We are proud to have won a Shared Value Award from local homelessness charity Oasis Community Housing at its flagship Black & Gold Ball fundraiser at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead on Friday 17 May.

The BBC’s Reverend Canon Kate Bottley, the charity’s Patron, Chair of Trustees Nick Salisbury, and Corporate Relationships Manager Hazel Ditchburn presented us with our award.

The Shared Value Awards are in recognition of businesses' support for Oasis Community Housing over the past 12 months and celebrate the success of its corporate partnerships.

Important partnerships

Hugh Welch, senior partner at Muckle, said: “The work that Oasis Community Housing does is vital in the fight against homelessness in our local communities. We are so grateful to play a small part in their incredible work.

“We look forward to continuing to support the charity through our corporate partnership and are proud to have, once again, received this Shared Value award”.

Oasis Community Housing supports people facing homelessness across North-East and South-East England. For the last 40 years, the charity has been working to address both immediate needs and the root causes of homelessness through its Basis crisis services; its Home 24/7 supported accommodations for men, women, and mothers with babies; its Aspire unemployment support and financial skills training; and Empower programme for women escaping domestic abuse.

Above and beyond

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 where people feel they belong through our homelessness 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.”
