Oasis

Oasis@Trinity offers a chance to chat, have a cuppa, browse our support library, find out what’s on, or simply sit a while to enjoy a still place in our busy world. Life throws many challenges our way and it is often with support  that we can feel stronger and get through. Claire Taylor co-ordinate our Oasis support and can welcome you into Oasis@Trinity Monday morning or by appointment if the need arises. We all need that ‘still place’ or simply to be with like-minded people chatting over a cup of coffee.

 

Claire Taylor has been part of the Trinity team for over 6 years working across the school as a Learning Mentor. With a busy family life including two teenagers, a horse and ageing parents she understands the challenges life can sometimes throw our way. While riding the roller coaster of life Claire ensures she enjoys the ups as well as weathering the downs!
