Why become a member of the OSCAR Network in Christchurch

The OSCAR Network has been for over twenty years a recognised leader in the OSCAR sector.

The OSCAR Network was established by programme providers to support and represent OSCAR services.  We are an independent, not for profit organisation which provides professional development for the OSCAR sector. 

We aspire to safe, accessible and affordable OSCAR services centering on the needs of tamariki and their whanau.

Membership of the OSCAR Network is not an endorsement of the standard of care being provided in an OSCAR programme.

The OSCAR Network supports OSCAR providers to operate quality services, however it is not a function of the OSCAR Network to accredit or assess OSCAR services.
