In April this year Oasis welcomed housing charity Aquila Way to the family. The existing Oasis housing projects (No 3 and the Foyer) joined together with Aquila to form Oasis Aquila Housing. On Friday 12th September Oasis Aquila Housing officially launched. The extended OAH staff team came together in Newcastle for a day of celebration and envisioning. Nancy Doyle, OAH CEO, spoke about the three themes of the new OAH strategy ‘Creating, Belonging and Journeying’ Steve Chalke founder of Oasis spoke about the power of not working in silo's but achieving true collaboration. The staff day was followed by a drinks reception for funders, partner agencies and staff past and present. Anthea Turner hosted the event which marked a significant milestone for everyone as Aquila became part of the Oasis family resulting in the joining up of fantastic projects working in the fields of youth homelessness.
