Opal (Older People’s Area Link) is a free information service run by Age Concern Hampshire to help people aged over 50 find activities, clubs and local services throughout Hampshire.
Our specially trained and trusted volunteers are available to chat over the phone. If you need a little more help or would prefer to talk to someone face-to-face, we have Opal volunteers in your area who can visit you at home.
