About Wandsworth Oasis

Since its foundation in 1989, Wandsworth Oasis has provided support to and challenged the stigma towards those living with HIV. Using revenue generated by our nine charity shops located in London, as well as fundraising initiatives, we provide grants to those charities who are working on projects or with groups that help to improve the quality of life of people affected by HIV and to HIV awareness and prevention work.


Our Aims, Values

Wandsworth Oasis is focused on raising money for HIV awareness and prevention. Our vision for the future is a London free of new HIV cases.

While Wandsworth Oasis aims to support and de-stigmatise those who are HIV-positive, and inform people as to how they can protect themselves from the disease, we do not directly provide health or prevention services. Instead, we direct our efforts and resources towards raising income to provide grants.

Wandsworth Oasis is a values-led organisation. Our current values are:


Together, we can effect change.


Everyone is welcome.


People are at the heart of what we do.

Our values have evolved and are grounded in:

We are one charity and one team

No matter which area of the charity we work in, we will always help a colleague out if we can. The charity is our common focus.

We are all equal

Everyone is different, everyone is welcome and everyone is treated with respect.

We are trustworthy and caring

We must keep the charity’s most valuable assets (people, stock and cash) safe at all times.

We value our community

We love local. We engage positively with our local area (businesses, residents, community groups etc) for mutual benefit.

We love creativity and innoation

We listen to everyone’s ideas on how we can increase awareness and raise money to support our cause.
