You may not be aware of the existence of the High Sheriff of South Glamorgan, but their work is vitally important. The post of High Sheriff dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, and today involves providing support to a variety of sectors within their local communities. 

The High Sheriff of a constituency will support numerous different organisations within that constituency, including the emergency services and voluntary groups. In her role as High Sheriff of South Glamorgan, Rosie Moriarty-Simmons did this by presenting Oasis with a High Sheriff’s award certificate.

This certificate serves as recognition of Oasis’ work with the refugee population of Cardiff. We are very grateful to be recognised in this way: earning recognition like this adds to positive public perception of our work, which is vitally important to a charity like ours. In a time of increasing animosity towards refugees and migrants, positive public perception will help ensure we can continue offering a warm Welsh welcome to any and all refugees in Cardiff.
