Dave Parr, CEO of Oasis Community Partnerships, said; “Thank you to all our supporters, partners, staff and community members. I hope you are proud of all that we have achieved together and that you are looking forward to the difference we can make in the future. It is a privilege to work with you all and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish in the coming year.”
Youth work is just one of the many areas Oasis works in across its communities, they use ‘Outcomes Stars’, which is a family of evidence based tools for measuring and supporting change. In 2018/19 Oasis mapped the progress of 136 young people with whom they were working with on a one-to-one basis using Youth Star tools as a framework.
Janet Berry, Director of Oasis Community Partnerships, commented saying; “Implementing the Youth Star has been an effective way of putting our person centred, strength-based and co-production approach into practice where the young person is seen as an active agent in their own life.”
