IMPROVING THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES

Support we offer

Workshops

Day Centres

Group Homes

Adult Groups

Workshops

We have two workshops situated in Claremont and Elsies River that provide a supportive work environment for 382 people with intellectual disabilities.  Many of our beneficiaries have little to no prospect of finding employment in the open labour market but thrive in our supportive environment.

Day Centres

Parenting a child with special needs can be a very challenging experience and one of our aims is to help alleviate some of the pressure.  The Oasis Day Centres focus on giving all the children in our care the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.  We also provide a range of additional support and development services including meals, transport and social work.

Group Homes

Our two Group Homes in Ruyterwacht and Kenwyn provide a caring home environment for 44 adults with intellectual disabilities.  These Group Homes enable us to provide supervised and secure group living accommodation for intellectually disabled people who are 18 years old or above and would like to live independently...

Adult Groups

The Oasis Adult Groups were started in 2014 as a direct response to an urgent need within the community.  It is the youngest project at Oasis and has done exceptionally well, starting with nine adults in 2014 to the current 60 who are assisted by a team of dedicated and professional support staff.

What people think about us

Oasis is proud of the work that we do within our community. 

Since the very beginning, our purpose at Oasis has been to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. We manage several programmes and projects designed to enable them to reach their full potential.

Intellectual disability is characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning (IQ>70) and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. This disability originates before the age of 18. The degree to which someone is intellectually disabled is generally referred to as mild, moderate, severe or profound, this is in relation to support needs.

Even though intellectual disability affects approximately 3% of our population, there is limited support available, especially in poorer communities. Oasis helps to bridge this gap.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable our beneficiaries with intellectual disability to realise their fullest potential and thereby become as independent and productive as possible.

Our Beneficiaries

Children and adults with intellectual disability deserve equal rights. They deserve to live a full and fulfilling life. But they also need some special consideration in terms of protection from hazards and exploitation, as well as advocacy and supervision and/or assistance.

Our Recycling Initiative

Our recycling drop off helps to improve the self-confidence of our beneficiaries working in this area. It also serves to improve the awareness of the integration of people with disabilities into our communities.
