"Oaks have helped us to unlock new grant opportunities for our schools which I honestly do not believe we would have been able to source ourselves. Recently their support has broadened to include procurement opportunities which are already yielding significant savings.”

“Oaks helped us to understand the art of what is possible for our Trust. They helped us to think creatively about our income generation potential and brought out the best ideas from our team."
