Over the last few weeks OPAL has been redesigning OPAL Services to comply with social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic.
We have successfully set up 3 new temporary services, all based on the social distancing and safe working guidance, while still supporting our members who are now self isolating.
Our new services are:
- A telephone befriending service to keep in touch with our most vulnerable members.
- A remote GoOnLine support service to support our members make best use of communication technology while isolated.
- An ‘OPAL Reach’ newsletter to help the OPAL community stay in touch.
We expect that normal OPAL services will resume as soon as the social distancing guidelines are relaxed.
