Announcement from Oasis-Talk CIC.
It is with great sadness that the Board has made the unanimous decision to stop delivering Talking Therapy services as of the 26th February 2021, and to formally close Oasis-Talk as of March 2021.
Oasis -Talk has proved itself as a high performing, innovative, quality provider of a range of therapeutic services to people in the South West. We delivered a significant proportion of mental healthcare in Bristol and South Gloucestershire for 8 years through the NHS IAPT contract until September 2019, but were unsuccessful in winning the new Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire IAPT contract for the region. This is now delivered by Vita Minds Ltd.
The Board recognises the great work that Oasis -Talk has done. In taking the decision now, we hope to be able to properly conclude any outstanding commitments for individual or group sessions. We particularly want to recognise and thank all of our staff past and present for their hard work and professionalism.
Finally, we wish all of our partners and funders in the voluntary, charity and social enterprise, public and private sectors all the very best for the future. Oasis-Talk remains hopeful that our legacy will continue, as we know that good quality provision for wellbeing is needed now more than ever and regret that Oasis Talk can no longer be a part of that provision.
