Oasis Aquila Housing
About us: 

Oasis Aquila Housing exists to create access to housing and provide supportive relationships, which eradicate homelessness; enable everyone to belong to their community; and journey with people as they overcome challenges and fulfil their potential.

In the Gateshead area, we are currently running 8 projects which include:

  • Naomi Project: 8 bed 24-hour staffed supported accommodation for homeless young women aged 16-30.
  • Elizabeth House: 9 bed 24-hour staffed supported accommodation for young mums aged 16-25 with their pre-school children.
  • Karis Project: Supported tenancies for young mums aged 16-25 with their children
  • Basis@336: Homeless drop-in centre focusing on prevention for those most at risk and services for those who are homeless; showers, laundry, food, and signposting advice to access appropriate housing.
  • Bond Scheme: Helping previously homeless people access the private rented sector and supporting tenancies longer term.
  • MASH Project: Supporting victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence alongside a number of other local agencies including the Police, social services and schools.
  • Talent Match: Targeted one-to-one support for young people aged 18-24 to prepare and get ready for employment, supporting them to overcome any barriers they may face.
  • BEAT: The Benefits, Employment, Action Team (BEAT) supports people aged 16 & over who are currently homeless, in supported accommodation or have experienced homelessness, helping them to overcome individual barriers to employment.

Our mission is:

To create access to housing and provide supportive relationships which eradicate homelessness; enable everyone to belong to their community; and journey with people as they overcome challenges and fulfil their God-given potential.

We are always keen to recruit volunteers who have a heart to serve vulnerable people and communities. We welcome volunteers from all faiths or none, but it is important that volunteers understand and sympathise with the Christian vision, ethos and culture of Oasis Aquila Housing.
