A quick message for all of our kind supporters,

Whilst this is a very challenging time for all businesses, Wandsworth Oasis will really feel the impact financially as 100% of our income is generated directly through our shops and fundraising events, neither of which we are able to do at this tough time. We also need to honour our obligations to our hard working staff.

Wandsworth Oasis was founded in 1989 and celebrated it's 30th year in 2019. Since then we have provided vital support to organisations, and challenged stigma towards, those living with HIV. Using revenue generated by our eleven charity shops located in south London, as well as fundraiser events, we have given over £1 million in grants to HIV-related projects and organisations.

The most recent estimate suggests there were 103,800 people living with HIV in the UK. Of these, around 7,500 are undiagnosed so do not know they are HIV positive.

London continues to have the highest rates of HIV in the country: 34% of new diagnoses were in London residents and 38% of people seen for HIV care were living in London. 

There are a number of ways that our loyal customers and donors can continue to support us. Whilst our shops may be closed until further notice and events are on hold, we are still working hard to raise money for those living with HIV. 

Ways you can help and support Wandsworth Oasis

  • Donating directly through our website. Any amount is always greatly appreciated.
  • De-clutter your homes whilst you have time. Once we are out the other side of this we will very gratefully accept all good quality donations. You can check out what we accept here.

We work to support vulnerable groups of people and there are many of our grantees that rely on our crucial funding to aid these groups. These types of organisations will also really feel this financial crunch. 

Whilst we completely understand this is a hard time for all, if you are in a position to help or know someone who might be please do share this with them.

We thank you for your continued support and urge everyone to stay safe, well and healthy. We WILL see you all on the other side!

From all at Wandsworth Oasis HQ.
