"Commissioning Oaks is the greatest thing we could have done for our charity. They've given us a new lease of life and rebuilt confidence in our UK and international fundraising endeavours."

Samantha Nayar, Chair of Magic Bus UK

“Oaks have been incredibly helpful in so many ways to Noah's star, but perhaps the most helpful area has been their support with our charity status application. A complicated process that Oaks navigated brilliantly for us, resulting in us becoming an officially registered charity. Their support has been instrumental in progressing us as an organisation.”

Jo-Anne Shellum, CEO at Noah's Star
