Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Community Hub

At Oasis we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected. To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs. 

As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive.  We call our model for these communities ‘hubs’.  

Oasis Academy MediaCityUK is part of Oasis Hub MediaCityUK.  As well as the Academy, the hub runs a number of services for the community.  By ensuring that all these services are joined up and rooted in the same ethos we want to see the entire community transformed for the better.

This page contains updates about what is happening around the life of the MediaCityUK hub.

Introducing Talk English Cafe!

We are excited to announce Talk English Café! The aim of ‘Talk English Café’ is to provide a safe space for local people who want to practice communicating English with others. This project is open to all people where English is an additional language and we are particularly looking for volunteers who are dual lingual and would like to offer their support.

Youth Work

The Youth Team was established in October 2010 working in partnership with local organisations to provide quality care for the community, specifically young people. The team is based in the Academy in the Community Hub Office.

What do we do?

We work to transform individuals and communities by promoting the personal, educational and social development of young people. The Youth and Community Team have partnered up with Salford Integrated Youth Support Service to provide high quality youth work in a number of different forms, including drop-in sessions, holiday activities, sports and the opportunity to be a part of specific projects.

Our Programme

Our youth programme engages with young people through various activities to encourage social, moral and general wellbeing. We aim to empower young people, raise self-esteem and aspirations as well as providing a fun, safe environment for young people to come to be with friends and make new friends.

We are hoping to extend our youth activities to provide open access provision during the week in an evening and during school holidays.
