Local activities and services
Older People’s Area Link (OPAL): Helping you to find local activities and services
OPAL volunteers are available to help and support older people who require information and ideas on local activities and services and may be struggling to find it out for themselves.
They are specially trained volunteers who are happy to chat on the phone to help you find the information, activities and services you want. If you need more help an OPAL volunteer can also visit you at home.
Opal is a county wide service ( but is not available in Portsmouth and Southampton).
How do I contact OPAL?
If you would like some support and advice or know someone who does, then please either:
- call: 0800 328 7154 (during office hours)
- or if you prefer fill in the OPAL Contact form and someone will call you back, on the number you have provided
If you are completing the form on behalf of someone else please ensure you have their permission.
