Omega are the national association for end of life care, and run a series of initiatives to support people who may be experiencing loneliness. For this Give it a go session, they will be running a series of activities to provide you with a taster into the role of a volunteer telephone befriender, so that you can learn more about what’s involved.

If you are a University Centre Shrewsbury student this will be a great opportunity to learn about a local charity and the roles they have available.

We will meet as a group at University Centre Shrewsbury, and take a short walk to the Omega offices in Shrewsbury Town Centre. The taster session will include a quiz, an introduction to the role and a chance to meet the staff and current volunteers.

Telephone befriending is a great, flexible way to volunteer that can fit around your studies, provide you with a chance to develop your communication skills, all whilst helping people to feel less lonely.

If this sounds like a volunteer role you would be interested in and would like to find out more, join us for this Give it a go session!

You can find out more and express your interest on the Volunteer Hub activity listing, and if you have any questions, please contact the team by emailing

Meet at 1.30pm at University Centre Shrewsbury
