The Go Group

Who are we?

We are a group of people who meet at OPAL on Thursdays at the Drop In 5 - 7pm. You can just come and join us. It is free to join and come to the GO Group on Fridays.

People who come to the Go Group decide what we want to do and we have our own Management Board.

We are independent and have our own board of management and we manage the group’s money.

What do we do?

We have meetings and talk about things we want to do and when we want to do them, then we GO ahead and organise them. That’s why we are called the ‘Go Group’.
