Omega, the National Association for End of Life Care
Omega is a small national charity helping to keep people connected and living well in later life, particularly those with life-limiting illness, those who are caring and those who are bereaved. We are a friendly end of life charity working hard to raise standards in end of life care.
We prioritise the most isolated clients over the age of 75 who are struggling without supportive people around them and who can’t get the help they need elsewhere. We offer a mix of support by telephone, letter and face-to-face delivered by more than 350 dedicated volunteers who are supported by a handful of paid staff. Much of our work is based in the West Midlands.
We aim to work collaboratively to tackle social isolation and improve overall wellbeing through award winning programmes that foster feelings of inclusion, connectedness, resilience and self-confidence as well as peer support to access services.
