Welcome to Omagh Victim Support Group
Omagh Support & Self Help Group (OSSHG) was founded in the aftermath of the Omagh Bomb in August 1998 to act as a source of support and solace for those adversely affected. Widely acknowledged as the worst single act of terrorism in the last 30 years, on Saturday 15th August 1998 at 3.10pm a car bomb exploded in Omagh, County Tyrone, killing 29 people plus two unborn children, and physically injuring over 200 others.

Omagh Support Group aim to provide Social Support to its members to reduce social isolation levels and enhance confidence levels, as outlined in the recent Needs Analysis and Strategic Plan of Omagh Support Group 2010-2013.
Omagh Support Group strongly believe that if we are to effectively help our members in their transition and journey of recovery this cannot be done by isolating the individual and only working with them.
Omagh Support & Self Help Group is involved with the Historical Enquires Team and the Police Ombudsman and many other state agencies in the pursuit for Truth and Justice for over 13 years.
Counselling is an opportunity to look at concerns or issues that are creating difficulties in our lives and to explore what we might do to change our lives in a safe and supported environment.
