Befriending services for caregivers looking after someone with a terminal illness, people who are themselves end of life, and those who have been bereaved.
We prioritise those aged over 75 and still caring or bereaved.
Omega is based in Shrewsbury and working across the UK.
A telephone befriending service which matches lonely clients with volunteer befrienders for half-hour weekly phone calls. It provides regular and meaningful companionship, emotional support and situation monitoring.
If you would like to try the programme or would like some more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01743 245088.
A pen pal service connecting clients with volunteer pen pals for a regular exchange of letters, photographs, art work and stories. The service can offer those who are extremely isolated a way to gently connect with another person; for others, it provides
a creative outlet and something to look forward to receiving in the post.
To apply for yourself or to refer someone you know, please download the Client Application Form and send it to Carol at email@example.com or
post it to Omega, London House, Town Walls, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY1 1TX.
