Omega Care For Life
Our donation provides befriending network groups for this End of Life Charity
Omega Care for Life is a multi-award winning end of life charity which helps caring families, bereaved former caregivers and clients who are to coming to terms with terminal illness. Their motto is “caring is everyone’s business.”
Based in the West Midlands, Omega’s initiatives include the Chatterbox Action Against Loneliness and Crisis Support programme, a telephone-enhanced befriending service. They also offer a network of 13 Meeting Point support and friendship groups for caregivers and former carers. In addition, there is a Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Family Support Programme and life-changing, therapeutic work opportunities.
The Axis Foundation has donated £2,000 to Omega Care for Life’s vital support networks.
Omega Development Director Tom Memery thanked the Axis Foundation for its support and told us how the funds will be put to use:
“We’re using your generous grant to support two new groups: one an informal regular gathering of Chatterbox Befrienders and Co-ordinators and an income-generating Friendship and Omega Supporters Group… The clients we help are often socially isolated and benefit enormously from peer-support. Omega groups are a gateway to other sources of help and information offered by Omega and our delivery partners.”
