Who is Omega?

Omega is a registered charity dedicated to reducing social isolation and loneliness. We offer Chatterbox, a free telephone befriending service and Letterbox, a free penpal befriending service.

Although Omega was founded as a specialist end of life care charity in 2007, our work has gradually refocused over the years, to reflect the needs of our clients. We discovered that while not all of them are dealing with end of life issues, the one thing that unites them is a daily struggle with feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Omega is run from a small head office in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, but our services are open to clients throughout the UK. Our work is made possible by an ever-growing team of generous and varied volunteers.
