Carers4Carers' Mission

 

In September 2013, Carers4Carers joined forces with the charity Omega Care for Life and became one of their network of Meeting Point Support Group.

Omega’s “raison d’être” is to ‘tackle the wider determinants of health, including social and economic issues.’ They work with family care-givers (or carers), particularly those looking after people with life-limiting or long-term health conditions, people nearing the end of life, the bereaved, socially isolated individuals, the frail and elderly.

The charity encourages:

  • self-help and peer support
  • the exchange of important information and coping skills
  • the entire community to get involved in ‘sharing the caring’
  • outreach activity to identify those in need of support

 Carers4Carers sympathises in every way with the ethos of Omega and joining them has strengthened the group by providing services such as training, guidance and administration plus access to a telephone support line for family carers called Chatterbox.
