Omega seeks to work collaboratively with partners to develop community-based projects which

  • support the frail/elderly and socially isolated individuals
  • empower unpaid caregivers, former carers and their families, who are affected by long-term and life threatening conditions.

We work in the following areas:

  • All aspects of non-clinical support for family caregivers, former carers, the bereaved, the frail-elderly and socially isolated individuals
  • Community outreach and engagement
  • Healthy living and emotional wellbeing

We have a small core team underpinned by an experienced Board of Trustees and a strong network of advisors and supporters. Skills held by members of the Omega Team and our delivery partners available for commission include:

  • Strategic leadership
  • Awareness raising
  • Volunteer and carer recruitment
  • Facilitation
  • Training
  • Dispute resolution and informal mediation

  • Toolkit and resource development
  • Coaching
  • Customer service / information / helpdesk provision

We can work with you to enhance the package of services you provide to those with caring responsibilities within your community: your tenants, residents, beneficiaries, employees and their families. We are able to provide support to those facing complex conditions, including dementia. We are able to offer cost-effective support solutions which will lead to better understanding and prevent catastrophic carer breakdown.

We are always keen to explore opportunities for joint working. There are many ways we can add value to your organisation by addressing the individual needs of carers, the bereaved and the socially isolated. We would be pleased to discuss ideas with you and can submit competitive proposals for your consideration. If you are interested, please contact us.
