Since Oasis was formed back in 1989,we have given away more than £1 million in grants to other charities and those working with people living with HIV or undertaking prevention work. 

You can support Wandsworth Oasis by bringing things in to the shops for us to sell. You can also donate money to us or support us on our various events and challenges. But what do we do with the money?


Our Grants scheme

Wandsworth Oasis exists to raise money for others, not for ourselves. We encourage organisations involved with the local community and working in HIV prevention or support to apply for a grant so that we can contribute to helping those in most need.

We will announce when the new round of applications can be submitted. 

If you are interested, you can find out more info here.
