The Rectory Homes Fund, donated by Rectory Homes through the Heart of Bucks foundation, is committed to contributing to local causes. One such cause is The Oasis Partnership who aim to enable individuals to become free from their dependence on substances, to make a full recovery and put their lives back on a meaningful course. Using The Pathways to Employment Program they aim to provide clients with the skills and experience to gain and sustain employment. For some this is about education including basic skills and literacy, for others it is about training and upskilling and for some, it is about key job searching activities.
Donations received pay for staff to work with the individuals on a 1-2- 1 basis, provides a group program, supports the individual with volunteering/work experience placements and provides courses. All this shortens the journey to meaningful lives. They encourage people during treatment to think about what comes next and work towards it, so once well into recovery it feels very achievable and realistic. To date they have worked with 256 clients with each receiving a bespoke plan depending on their circumstances and needs.
