Lincolnshire (The Oasis)
The Oasis is a safe, calm environment for young people to embark on, with the help of a youth worker, a journey where they self-discover, create pathways and journey together towards a fulfilling future.
What we do
THE OASIS is in essence a social and therapeutic garden.
It is the process of using plants and garden itself to improve physical and mental health. It is also used to improve communication skills, thinking skills, emotional intelligence and develop character. THE OASIS is a place that is peaceful and restorative. The garden is a safe and secure place to develop a young person’s ability to mix socially and learn practical skills that help them move into employment or training.
We currently do this through 3 programmes.
- ’Flourishing from the Margins’. A 5 week programme for school pupils at risk of exclusion.
- Journeyman. An individual mentoring programme. A young person can be referred to this programme at any time. The length and duration of their contact with us is decided together and a set of self chosen targets are worked towards.
- Accredited programme. At set intervals throughout the year we run accredited programmes. These are aimed at young people 16+ who are not in any other training provision or employment. In particular we aim to take young people who have struggled in a conventional classroom setting. A young person is able to do one of these programmes on its own or in conjunction with the Journeyman programme.
