Visiting Leeds OASIS

Leeds OASIS is a residential short-stay service for people in crisis. Some people are better suited in a homely environment rather than in hospital. The service is set up to feel like an ordinary house and you can stay for up to seven nights or, if you’re a day visitor, you can visit between 10am and 9pm, for up to a week.

If you’re using the service as a guest (staying overnight for up to a week), you will get your own private room with ensuite bathroom. This will include a safe (for storage of personal items and any medication you need).

Overnight guests and day visitors will be able to use the “home”: relax in the lounge or conservatory, use the kitchen to cook or bake; and enjoy the garden.
The service is staffed 24/7. Staff are in the communal areas at all times. They will support you to feel at home during your stay and can help you to socialise, prepare and cook food; and participate in various activities on offer. You will have at least a daily check-in with staff to see how you are doing, plus there will be optional support too: groups will be running through the day and you will have the option of an hour’s one-to-one session daily for emotional support (our staff are trained in PersonCentred and trauma-informed ways of working). Workers will also support you to look at anything that will help you to resolve your current crisis, like help with benefits.
