We have been speaking to Jenni Parker from The Oasis Partnership, who we are pleased to announce is our Client Spotlight of the month! Here’s what she had to say:
“1. What is your role at your organisation and what do you enjoy most about it?
I am the Operations Manager at The Oasis Partnership. The best part of my role is seeing our ideas and dreams of supporting communities across Buckinghamshire come to fruition. We don’t just come up with these ideas in a board room, they come from speaking to and engaging with communities across the county, co-producing groups and services that are needed and wanted by the communities we work in. The other best part of my role is supporting the amazing team at Oasis, whether they are volunteers or staff. The team work hard, always have fun and are the most dedicated and passionate team of people I have ever worked with!
2. Tell us about your organisation and what it strives for?
The Oasis Partnership is a very special charity. Nearly 40 years ago it was set up to support people in treatment and recovery for substance and alcohol use and to this day continues to work hard to build recovery networks in Buckinghamshire. Oasis currently works in partnership with Inclusion NHS to be part of the One Recovery Bucks team but a few years ago it changed its aims and objectives to look at early intervention and prevention through building stronger, happy communities. It does this through its Social Prescribing project and its Routes to Work team and its many other dynamic and exciting projects that support socially isolated individuals throughout the county.
3. What challenge/s did you want Framework Digital to help you with?
We needed a website that was easy to navigate, was accessible and spoke to not only people looking to access our services but also funders and supporters. The Oasis Partnership runs a host of projects and initiatives, and we wanted a website that made all these projects clear and easy to understand and access as well as being able to explain why and how all these projects linked together.
As others may know, the current financial climate is making it harder and harder to raise much needed funds for the charity, so we wanted a website that told our story and encouraged people to donate to our cause.
4. Can you tell us something that happened during a project you weren’t expecting?
I think the first thing we weren’t expecting was that Framework Digital really understood what we were about as a charity and totally got our aims from the word go. We are a large charity that has a multitude of projects and so it was a huge surprise when we first saw the mock ups and ideas and they captured everything we had hoped.
5. If you were to recommend Framework Digital to someone, what would you say?
A friendly, wonderful, and supportive business who go above and beyond what is expected to support their customers, listen to their needs, and go the extra mile to get it right. No question is too small or insignificant and you feel heard and seen every step of the way.”
Thanks so much for the kind words Jenni! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and you made the process so easy. – Mike
