Care For Cancer

A self-funded charity based in Campsie, Omagh, Care For Cancer was founded by Joan Hamilton and Paddy (Patricia) Abbot after they lost their husbands at a very young age to cancer.

The charity provides information, advice and practical support to individuals and their families in Omagh and surrounding areas who have been touched by cancer. Their services include a drop-in centre run by experienced volunteers, transport for patients to hospital appointments, complimentary therapies including aromatherapy, reflexology and reiki and more. Over 1,000 people came through their doors in 2017. Having recently celebrated their 30th anniversary people say that they couldn’t have made the cancer journey without them.

 

Support2gether

Established in 2012, Support2gether is a voluntary charity that provides education and support for families living with antenatal and postnatal depression. This includes helping fathers and extended family. With a head office based in Omagh, and outreach centres in Clogher and Lisnaskea, the charity have two trained mental health coaches and one counsellor so that local people don’t suffer in silence.

At Support2gether, the charity focuses on the “journey from recovery to discovery” because it is completely normal for some parents to experience depression. Everyone involved has either beaten depression or has helped others through it, and it offers a non-judgmental environment which focuses on helping an individual reconnect with themselves.

 

South West College

With four campuses in Omagh, Enniskillen, Dungannon and Cookstown, South West College is a Further and Higher education provider. This year, 29 students from the Health and Life Services departments at the Omagh and Enniskillen campuses embarked on a joint venture which aimed to increase knowledge and awareness of domestic and sexual violence.

Funded by Fermanagh and Omagh Policing and Community Safety Partnership, the students attended workshops and were tasked with creating a slogan and devising a method to get their message out to the public. The aim of the project was for participants to gain social responsibility, increased knowledge and awareness for all students and the wider community.
