Wolverhampton

In the best interests of all clients, supporters and colleagues, we are postponing or suspending all community fundraising and outreach activity in light of covid-19 coronavirus. We look forward to resuming all of our events and activities as normal soon. Stay tuned!

Omega Network of Meeting Point Support Groups

If you are caring 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 info@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.

Second Tuesday of the Month - Free Carer Support Group

6:00pm - 7:30pm, Zion City Tabernacle, 126 Compton Rd, Wolverhampton, WV3 9QB. Facilitated by Omega; suitable for all carers.


The Omega community fundraising promise
At Omega, we are a tiny team of paid staff and a huge team of enthusiastic volunteers. We occasionally arrange a series of lively community fundraising events and income generating activities. We welcome your ideas and will do our best to implement your feedback. Most events need a minimum level of support. We invite you to register your interest and your communication preferences early so we can notify you in advance should it be necessary to cancel an event for any reason.
