Who we are What we do WHAT WE DO OUR MAIN AIM AND VISION IS TO HELP REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS INTEGRATE WITHIN THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITY. 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 daily visitors from around the globe, this includes people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, El Salvador, and Ivory Coast 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 organise regular cultural and sportstrips 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 our weekly Home Supper Club with a dish from a different part of the world every week, which have been introduced to us by our culinarily talented clients. Due to Covid-19 a lot of our community and client-facing events and activities have either been put on hold or we are in the process of re-planning them, but we hope to continue to involve our wider community in the very near future with regular cultural and food-related events. 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.
