• The Living Room

    The Living Room

    This newly transformed space is being provided by Oxford Winter Night Shelter as a place where the homeless can come during the day.
    Since September 2021  guests, who will have been referred  by other agencies, have been able to use the shower, wash their clothes, access a laptop and most importantly, relax and recover a little from the harshness of the streets.

    We hope the intimate and caring nature of The Living Room will ultimately help homeless people regain their self-confidence and start to look at alternative ways of living. We have seen many people come through our doors. Some were just passing through, some are still regular patrons and some we’ve seen go on to permanent housing. Regardless, we’ve been able to provide a consistent service.

  • Aston Tirrold and Aston Upthorpe fundraising for OxPAT

    Over Christmas, 24 houses in the Astons in South Oxfordshire took part in 'Advent Windows' to raise money for the church and a worthy charity. After doing some research, the organisers came across OxPat and they agreed they would like to support the excellent work that OxPAT does. Astons is a village in South Oxfordshire called Aston Tirrold and Aston Upthorpe. OxPAT is very grateful to Aston and the Diamonds for their generous donation to OxPAT .
