Welcome to Omega

We help to keep people connected and living well in later life, particularly those over the age of 75 with life-limiting illness, those who are caregivers, those nearing the end of life, and those who are bereaved.

We prioritise the most socially isolated people who are struggling without supportive people around them and who can’t get the help they need elsewhere.

Our aim is to tackle social isolation and improve overall wellbeing through fully safeguarded befriending and support programmes that foster feelings of inclusion, build resilience and self-confidence, as well as offer peer support and access to activities, essential information and services. For our clients, we are a lifeline.

If you need support and advice, or are worried about someone you know, we’re here to help.

How to become a volunteer
