Walsall Omega Meeting Point Support GroupsAbout Omega Meeting Points

If you look after someone, attending a Meeting Point Support group is a good way to help you meet and socialise with people who really understand what it means to be a family caregiver. Omega hosted groups are places where you can relax, pick up new skills and gather important information. From time to time, some of our groups become oversubscribed and it is therefore necessary to close them to new members. To find out more about groups not featured on the Omega website please contact Janet Wood; janet@omega.uk.net. We also invite you to get in touch if you want us to start a new group or support an existing group.

Unless stated otherwise, Omega events are free to carers, former carers and the bereaved. Please help us to eradicate wastage and make things runs smoothly by confirming your attendance; contact us. Events marked * are likely to be of interest to Omega beneficiaries but are organised by others; if you require further information, please contact the organiser directly.

Walsall Carers Centre
If you look after a relative or friend of any age, who because of illness or disability, cannot manage without your help – then you are a carer.

Walsall Carers Centre has been put together to offer help and guidance to all carers.
