Omega is a small charity with a big heart. Older people are particularly vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, which can have a serious effect on their physical and mental health and wellbeing.
However, there are ways to overcome loneliness. And we are working hard to improve the lives of older people across England and Wales, particularly those over the age of 75 with life-limiting illness, those who are near the end of life, or who are caring for someone who is, or who are bereaved.
Thanks to the support of our corporate partners, our team of around 350 trained volunteers are keeping in touch with those who need us.
Every partnership is different, but here are some of the ways we can work together:
Whether a one-off donation, monthly contribution, multi-year donation, support in-kind or sponsoring an event or project that closely links with your brand and CSR aspirations, a gift from your company will help us with our vital work to keep older people connected and living well.
Choose us as your charity of the year
If your company has Charity of the Year partnerships, please consider nominating Omega as one of your partners – the funds you raise will help us to keep people connected and living well in later life.
Volunteering and giving something back is a hugely rewarding way for your staff to get involved in our cause and help make a difference. As well as helping others, volunteering is great for team-building and has shown to improve volunteers’ wellbeing too. Plus it’s a great way for your staff to gain new skills and experience.
We offer a range of volunteering opportunities.
