Solas Keeping Connected Support

During the time our house is closed due to social distancing measures, we are offering support via the telephone or online.  As time goes on, we aim to increase the different types of support we can offer online and updates will be added to the website as well as Facebook, to encourage people to protect their emotional health by limiting the time on social media. 


Our volunteers are available to talk to Mon-Thur between 10am & 11.30am by phoning 028 2039 0135.  If you want to make contact outside those hours for any reason, email with your name and number and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Keeping Connected 5th April

Instructions to connect to zoom the first time:

The good thing about Zoom is that it creates a sense of community.  It is not just watching a video.  We can choose to relate to each other almost as well as if we were in the room together.


It's not necessary to create a Zoom account——if you have never used Zoom before, 15 minutes before we start, just click on the link, there will be a prompt to download the Zoom launcher (very quick depending on the speed of your gadget), and that will give you access to our online gathering.

It's a better experience on a computer or tablet but a smart phone will work.

Our Solas online groups are experiencing such benefit from being able to connect in a group with others. The groups also helps people to relax and feel uplifted.
If you are new to video calling, we are happy to offer a short introductory call to guide you through connecting for the first time. We can also show how to join these sessions without being on video while still hearing and seeing the facilitators; or you can also mute any audio, so people can join in the singing without being heard by others! Please send us a pm or email and we will arrange a time to.
