Not only do we encourage integration within our own community and culture
but we are also keen to learn and be inspired by the cultures and traditions
we are exposed to daily by our wonderful clients at Oasis.

We have roughly 150 – 250 visitors daily, this includes people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali, and Congo among many other countries.
Some have just arrived in Cardiff whereas others have been here for a few years and visit Oasis to socialise with the many friends they have made here.

During the week our centre is open to refugees and asylum seekers, we run various women-only sessions and groups, art classes, English language classes, sports sessions, daily advisory sessions, advocacy forums, relaxation sessions, and the list goes on, oh and we provide free lunch every weekday and it’s always delicious!

Outside of our centre we aim to organise regular cultural and sports
trips around Wales from museum and art gallery visits to sport team 
activities and mountain peak challenges. 

To involve and engage our local and wider community with what
we do and all of the amazing people we meet we run regular community events such as a monthly Supper Club with a dish from a different part of
the world every month, as well as our monthly Oasis Cardiff Pop Up events
where we serve global food that has been introduced to us by our culinarily talented clients. We also
host two weekly community cinema clubs free for all!

About The Plate:

The Plate is a project delivered in partnership with Oasis Cardiff, in which we aim to involve and engage the local and the wider community in the work we conduct with all of the amazing people who access our centre. The project enables an opportunity to deliver regular community events, inspired by the culinary prowess of our talented clients, in which we hope to create a melting pot of cultural food heritages from around the globe. Money raised from these events is put back into the organisation, contributing towards further help, activities, regular training and Cookery Clubs for those who have expressed an interest in cooking and catering.
