Oasis is a non-profit organisation, a legal persona in its own right, with no shareholders or owners. It is governed by a non-remunerated board of people who have the ability to find balance between managing limited resources effectively, maximising efficiencies and maintaining the ethos of care that has been the hallmark of our work over the years.
“Oasis came into being because a group of parents refused to take no for an answer. Little did they know that their tireless efforts would, over decades, unlock incredible opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.” – Gail Bester; Executive Director
Today Oasis offers opportunities for more than 500 people with intellectual disabilities as our primary beneficiaries, and their families as our secondary beneficiaries. These opportunities in Claremont, Delft, Elsies River, Kenwyn, Ravensmead and Ruyterwacht, include:
• Group living in affordable housing.
• Occupation and training in protected and supported environments.
• Day Care Centres with specialised care for severely and profoundly disabled kids.
• Activity groups for adults who need high levels of supervision.
