Omega is a small charity based in Shrewsbury that supports socially isolated people.       

The charity operates two projects, both of which are free of charge,

Chatterbox
This is a telephone befriending scheme.  Our volunteer befrienders are matched with clients and are happy to talk about anything as well as offering emotional support.  You can see more information at – https://www.omega.uk.net/chatterbox-action-against-loneliness-programme-p-173.htm         

A Letter from Louise
This is a penpal befriending service.  As with Chatterbox our volunteer befrienders are matched with clients with similar interests so they can share stories and experiences.  It is also possible for clients only to receive letters.  All post is directed via our office using a freepost system so clients addresses are confidential. Many of our befrienders include photos and pictures with their letters.  You can see more information at – https://www.omega.uk.net/a-letter-from-louise-p-214.htm
