Garden Visits

Adapting to a new world of lockdowns meant that for long periods physically meeting up was very difficult, but as our staff and volunteers have proved, not impossible.

By taking advantage of every opportunity to meet up with our members and carer’s through doorstep stops and garden visits, they have kept things going, including for those members and carers who have not been able to join in with the reopening of face to face activities.

Doorstep stops and garden visits are now part of the offer. Whether dropping off an activity pack on a doorstep, having a quick socially distanced chat or by arranging a visit in a member’s or carer’s garden, OPAL continues to keep in touch with a good ol’ face to face catch up.
