Omega, Care for Life strives to improve the quality of life for care-givers and those in need of care

Omega, Care for Life strives to improve the quality of life for care-givers and those in need of care .

Loneliness and social isolation are common experiences for unpaid care-givers, whose vital role is often overlooked. Omega offers support to those who are risk of isolation; people who may struggle looking after someone with a long-term or complex condition, former care-givers, the bereaved, and the elderly.

Omega offers a wide range of support to over 5,000 people across the Midlands. The charity hosts support groups, shares essential information and coping skills as well as providing social activities and learning opportunities.

One of the charity’s key services is the Chatterbox Action Against Loneliness and Crisis Support programme which offers a friendly listening ear as well as advice, information and the chance to find out more about local services.

The charity also runs the Motor Neurone Disease Family Support Programme, a bereavement support programme and an employment advice service.

In 2017, Omega,Care for Life received £2,400 to help tackle isolation and loneliness in the Midlands

Omega care for life thanks the Masonic Charitable Foundation for their generous donation in the sum of £2,400, which will help Omega to continue its important work supporting carers, former carers, the bereaved, the frail-elderly and the socially isolated. Support from like-minded organisations such as the Masonic Charitable Foundation enables us to reach more hidden clients in need
