Supporting our Community
Community is at our heart
Oakfield are deeply rooted in the communities we work in, with our teams dedicated to making a difference within their areas. Giving back is in our backbone. We are driven to succeed, humbled by success and genuine about helping our local charities and community projects.
Showing our support
Over the years we are proud to have supported many schools fetes, local events, football teams to name just a few. We have also supported a number of individual team members in their personal endeavours to raise money for Charites with a marathon run and bungy jump most recently.
Our Community Pledge was launched in June 2022 to allow us to give even more back. We pledge to make a £50 donation for every property we sell, which will be donated upon completion, the seller will have the opportunity to choose from our selected charities to decide who they would like to receive the donation. We have carefully selected six local charities to support, who we feel really make a difference within our community and organisations that are close to our hearts.
We will still continue supporting the local schools and projects in our area in addition to encouraging our team to be involved in assisting and volunteering within the community.
Warming up the Homeless
Warming up the Homeless mission is to relieve poverty among the homeless, throughout Hastings, St Leonards, Eastbourne and Bexhill, through the provision of items to support basic needs such as sleeping bags, ground sheets, survival sheets, blankets, clothing, food and toiletries. They also aim to improve the individual’s welfare through emotional support, even if it’s just a smile or by signposting them to other services.
Aspens – Roebuck Day Centre
Aspens believe that we all deserve to live life to its full potential. They provide care and support for people living with disabilities, complex needs and autism.
At Oakfield we work specifically with the Roebuck Day Centre who focus on giving people the skills they need to live their lives as independently as possible, including social and transferable skills, community skills, self-help, leisure and work skills. They also hold close links with local colleges and community projects, so that people who join the workshops at Roebucks can share their skills with their local community.
Running Space is a local charity with a passion to see every life lived in all its fullness and not one to be lost to suicide.
They feel that every person they run with has treasure and riches within them, often buried deep under hurt and pain of abuse, abandonment, and rejection. Their purpose is to run shoulder to shoulder with you, and in running to help shake the dirt off each other’s lives and pull out the treasure. However, it’s not just about running the there are lots of other activities they do.
Raystead Centre for Animal Welfare
Raystead Centre for animal welfare care for over 2,000 animals a year, rehoming over 1,000 animals across East Sussex and providing sanctuary to even more at their 43 Acre site in Ringmer. They are one of the most diverse rescue centres in the UK because they care for so many different species of animals.
They are also invested in educating pet owners of the future and aim to give young people an understanding and practical advice on how to love and care for animals. With free family friendly activities and interactive school programmes.
Holding Space is a volunteer-led organisation that supports families, parents and children across East Sussex struggling with their mental health. More people than ever are struggling with stress, anxiety and mental health issues as a result of the Covid pandemic, enforced lockdowns and the dramatic changes to our every-day lives.
The ethos of Holding Space is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space for parents and carers to come together; to be supported, to connect, chat and most importantly to know that they are not alone. The voice of the parent is paramount, and no parent should walk this journey alone.
Demelza offers a community hospice at home service for children and young people up to the age of 18, providing therapies, respite and end of life care in the comfort of a child’s own home across East Sussex.
They believe that every child and young person who has a serious or terminal condition should receive the care and attention they need to live the most fulfilling life they can, and that you have the opportunity to build memories, for however long you have.
