The Young Oasis team offer confidential one-to-one support to children and young people in Lincolnshire who have been or are affected by a family member misusing drugs or alcohol.
Oasis recognises that substance misuse does not recognise class or social boundaries, and can affect anyone within the community. It also doesn’t just affect the individual and can have a devastating effect on the whole family, with children often feeling isolated and afraid.
The Young Oasis team provides much needed emotional support, wellbeing advice, or a non-judgmental listening ear to allow young people to fully express themselves and begin to work through the challenges of their situation.

Community Organising is the process of identifying what people care strongly about in their community through conversations and relationship building. By taking the time to understand the views of people, Community Organisers seek to support, encourage and motivate individuals to make change happen, improve their local area and take action on the issues that matter to them.
Social Action Hubs are delivered by Community Organisers and are based within a local area. Social Action Hubs are able to offer training and support to individuals to enable them to be catalysts for social action, volunteering and change in their community.
We are keen to engage young people in the Social Action Hub project in order to enable them to participate in volunteering and social action in their communities. Community Organising can also support the personal development of young people, enhancing employability skills, improving self confidence and advancing communication techniques.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and the work undertaken through Social Action Hubs can be tailored to meet the needs of the young people and a community or a local area relevant to them, however below are some examples of what Social Action Hub support could include:
-Workshop on Community Organising: practical session/s on Community Organising, including information on volunteering and social action
– Volunteer Project: support given to young people to deliver a volunteer project, this may be based around a specific community e.g. the area in which their youth club/school/service provider is based
– Social Action Campaign: guidance and support to enable young people to complete a larger social action campaign, this could involve young people reaching out to their wider community or where they live locally
– Use of Community Organising principles and social action work to contribute to any relevant awards, certificates, or existing programmes such as Duke of Edinburgh
– Opportunity for young people to access and complete a free recognised Community Organising Qualification either as a one day training option or as accredited training
