About Our Resources

We thank colleagues, supporters, delivery partners, and family carers for contributing to this information, and special thanks to volunteers Michael Harvey and Alison Shaw for collating it. In selecting resources to list, our editing policy is liberal. Highlighting diversity is important to us but Omega does not necessarily share all the opinions expressed. Inclusion should not be considered recommendation, and Omega is not responsible for the content of linked resources.

Get in touch to suggest additional resources, correct mistakes, or request a deletion.
