Welcome to the Oasis Community Centre


Our Community Centre is based in the small market town of Wisbech situated in the heart of the Fenland region of East Anglia, on the Waterlees Ward of Wisbech, which is the most deprived ward in Cambridgeshire.

Opened by Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, the Centre has been supporting the people of North Wisbech for over 30 years. The new Centre was built as a result of more than three years work by a group of local residents following a feasibility study which found that a new Centre would be more appropriate than refurbishing the old building.

The new building was opened in March 2005 and offers five key services; community centre, health clinic, business conference facility, family learning and children's nursery.

The Centre is owned and run by the Wisbech Community Development Trust which is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. The Trust is currently made up of nine local residents/ users and four representatives from public and private organisations.

Having served the community for over 30 years the Centre prides itself on being run by local people who understand the needs of their community. Their vision is to provide support and activities that encompass all age groups, abilities, interests and needs of the local people.  The Trust relies on the income generated from the hire of their rooms to cover the costs of running the Community Centre because they do not receive any core funding from anywhere.  The other form of income is from the grants that the Centre Manager applies for to put on various community activities like Basic Skills, Confidence Building and Family Fun Days.
