Steve Chalke founded the Oasis Trust back in 1985 with a vision to build inclusive local communities. Oasis is now one of the largest charities in the UK, as well as working in a host of other countries. It provides housing, education, healthcare, various other community-building initiatives and is now working with the Ministry of Justice to create the UK’s first Secure School.
Steve is also an author, speaker, former UN Special Advisor on Human Trafficking and a Baptist minister. He holds an MBE and various honorary fellowships, all awarded for his work in social inclusion and justice. He still leads Oasis and is also the founding minister of Oasis Church Waterloo in central London – a place of inclusion where all are welcome.
