1) What's the difference between "full OPAL Membership" and "affiliated Membership"?

Full OPAL membership is available to anyone aged 60 years or over who lives in the Leeds 16 area north of the Leeds Ring Road. Our area covers postcodes LS16 6xx, LS16 7xx, LS16 8xx and LS16 9xx.

An annual membership fee of £12 gives access to all of our services.

If you are younger than 60 years old or live outside our geographical boundaries, you can still join OPAL by paying the £12 annual membership fee and becoming affiliated members. Access is available to most of our activities but transport to these activities cannot be provided. Affiliated members cannot access services which require us to go to them, such as home visits, befriending or the handyman or transport service.
