The Oyster Project is a Lewes-based charity founded and run by creative people each dealing with their own unique circumstances which in themselves contribute to their being disadvantaged & disabled.
It's where it's all about volunteering, taking part, working together and developing skills to make things happen for the better. Better for the individual and better for the community.
- Why - we believe in the talents and skills of people with physical disabilities & older people.
- How - Our various initiatives create empowerment environments where people can demonstrate positive role models and challenge negativity and prejudice.
- What - we peer support and encourage people who want to volunteer and be involved in the community.
