BBC Radio Shropshire's Eric Smith & Omega Chatterbox Befriender Jean Griffin

Welcome

Omega exists to tackle the wider determinants of health, including social and economic issues. We achieve this by providing access to opportunities, information and a range of other non-clinical support. We work with family carers, people nearing the end of life, the bereaved, socially isolated individuals, the frail and the elderly. Read More >>

Omega's Work

  • Supporting caring families particularly those looking after people with life-limiting or long-term health conditions
  • Supporting former care-givers, the bereaved and the lonely, the socially isolated and the frail-elderly
  • Undertaking outreach activity to identify those in need of support
  • Helping to raise standards in end of life care
  • Collating and sharing information and resources
  • Collaborating with other organisations to improve quality of end of life care in the community

We have a proven track record reaching unpaid family care-givers who have not previously accessed the limited support available to them. Typically, our beneficiaries face three key problems:

  • Poverty
  • Social isolation
  • Poor health

We adopt a variety of efficient and cost-effective delivery models, relying upon a mix of experienced professional staff employed upon a sessional basis.
