Volunteers are vital to Omega’s success in supporting socially isolated and lonely people. Our telephone and penpal befriending services (Chatterbox and Letterbox) are made possible thanks to the hundreds of people who give their time and thoughtfulness as volunteer befrienders. Omega volunteers are trained and supported by head office staff. They are also DBS checked, where necessary.
