OPAL is an information, advice and referral service for adults (16+) in East Dunbartonshire who need a bit of help and support, but do not know how to access it.

OPAL can help you with all sorts of inquiries, from finding a plumber through to planning a care package. OPAL is a free service – all you pay for is a local telephone call.

OPAL Advisers all work in East Dunbartonshire, they know the local area and they know what services are available. They may not always be able to answer your question immediately, but they will go away and find the answer and then get back to you.

My GP advised my mother to grant a Power of Attorney, but she had no idea what that was or how to go about it. OPAL was able to explain Power of Attorney to us, and put us in contact with solicitors who were familiar with the process.
