001: BBOWT - The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust
Vote for Oxford’s WILDEST bus! The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust protects wildlife across Oxfordshire - from insects and reptiles, to birds and mammals, plants and fungi. We look after nearly 90 nature reserves including 30 in Oxfordshire, protecting and restoring havens for wildlife so that everyone has the chance to benefit from these special places. We are inspiring the next generation to care for wildlife through education programmes and events for all ages, protecting Oxfordshire’s wildlife both within and beyond our reserves now and for the future. Our wildlife is under more threat than ever before so we’re continually looking for more ways to help nature’s recovery. Proudly backed by over 1,800 volunteers, we simply couldn’t do the work that we do without our diverse and talented team. Please help spread awareness of the vital work we are doing by voting for the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust. If you think everyone should have access to nature, please vote for us today, and help create Oxford’s WILDEST bus! This entry was submitted by Bianca Rush https://www.bbowt.org.uk
002: OASIS - Oxfordshire Autistic Society Information & Support
For OASIS to win BRAND THE BUS would mean the absolute world. It’s a small charity run by a committee of parents, providing support for parents, carers and families of children on the autistic spectrum & related conditions, such as sensory processing disorder and global development delay.We would love the opportunity to raise as much awareness of autism as is possible, the more we raise awareness the more families we can potentially reach across the county. It would be amazing to reach parents and carers who are either new to their autism journey or further down the path, we’d love to show them they are not on their own, that there are others out there also on the autism journey. OASIS knows it can be such a lonely experience and we aim for families to make long term friendships through the services that we offer. OASIS have monthly coffee and chat session run in Oxford, Abingdon, Didcot, Wantage and Witney, these are very informal drop ins, it’s a place to eat cake, drink coffee and just off load without feeling any kind of judgement. Our members have also said this is one of the best places for first hand experience and they get some great advice. OASIS run annual clinics that we run for free for anyone to gain outside professional support for their individual circumstances. The book lending library is vast and available to members for borrowing at any time, this is kept up to date with new material. OASIS also plan to launch a sensory library this year where by members can try some of the more expensive equipment without any of the expense. One of the main services OASIS provide is playdays during all school holidays, as parents of ASD children we completely understand that the school holidays can be isolating and stressful. This provision is for the whole family unit, it includes parents and siblings so everyone gets involved. OASIS aims to provide a wide range of activities that are both suitable and safe for everyone. OASIS are currently the only organisation that provides this type of support across the whole county. So for OASIS to win BRAND THE BUS would just be totally amazing to our current families we support and the ones we would potentially reach as a result. OASIS have been running for 20 years and will continue to provide support for many more to come. This entry was submitted by Maxine Seddon. http://oasisonline.org.uk
