Oaks were formed in 2008 and exist to help socially minded organisations raise their game.

We were hugely impressed with the Oaks team and their rapid insight into our charity’s work and capturing of our vision for a financially capable UK. We very much look forward to a long and successful collaboration with them on multiple projects.
