Join us in supporting Oasis: #HikeForHousing

During June and July, housing associations across Wales will be stepping up for their chosen charity having been called upon by Community Housing Cymru to raise as much money as possible. For the entire month of July, we will challenge all Newydd employees to walk or run as many miles as possible. We will be raising money towards an incredible charity based in Cardiff called Oasis. 

Oasis is dedicated to supporting refugees and asylum seekers from across the globe. They offer a range of sessions including women-only sessions, art classes, English language classes, sports sessions, and the list goes on. Their main aim is to help refugees and asylum seekers integrate within their local community, providing them with the opportunity for a fuller and healthier life.

By completing this sponsored walk, we hope to raise some crucial funding that will enable Oasis to continue to offer support and access to vital services. As a housing association, we are deeply committed to providing affordable housing for those in greatest need. We value the work Oasis does to prepare refugees and asylum seekers for independent living, as it is a fundamental step towards their well-being.

Jason Wroe, our Chief Executive said, "At Newydd, we strongly believe in the strength of community and the importance of coming together to build a better future. By joining this campaign, we can support Oasis in their invaluable efforts and help transform the lives of those who need it the most."

Reynette Roberts MBE, CEO of Oasis said, “This challenge of walking steps is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the journey of a refugee and the steps they have taken to integrate into a new society. This is an amazing challenge which will resonate with our clients and we're so grateful to those taking part!”
