About Oasis Cardiff

Oasis Cardiff is an organisation that aims to help Refugees and Asylum Seekers to integrate into their local community in Cardiff.

We provide weekly cookery sessions, various women only sessions, craft sessions and language classes as well as a range of other activities. The kitchen is often the centre of our activities!

We opened on 30 September 2008. In the first three weeks we had between 25-44 visitors.Now that has increased to 100-110 visitors per day.

These have included people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali and Congo, among many other countries. Some have just arrived in Cardiff, whilst others have been here for a few years.

We have established links with the Community Police, Cardiff Council and other drop in centres. Sessions have been run by a variety of different organisations and continue to run throughout the year.

Those that come are welcome to give their ideas on how to improve our services.
