Hot meals delivered straight to your door

Due to the pandemic, we have adapted and developed new services to ensure we can still help support older people during this critical time. Our hot meal service runs 7 days a week and has been a vital lifeline to many older people during the pandemic. If you or someone you know is struggling to access a hot and nutritious meal, then we may be able to help.

Important Information Regarding COVID-19

Although our day centre remains closed, we have adapted ‚Äčour services to ensure our clients remain supported. We have developed new services to help support older people during this critical time, including our new Community Hot Meal Service, our Welfare Check Service and our Digitally Connected Services.

We have had no reported cases of COVID-19. For advice about COVID-19 please follow the link on the right to the NHS website.

What's going on

Changes due to COVID-19

Due to the ever changing situation with Covid 19, we would like to reassure our clients and their families that we are still providing support and services to local older people. We have adapted ‚Äčour services to ensure we meet all the recommended precautions to avoid the spread of the virus whilst protecting our clients, our volunteers and our staff. We have also developed new services to help support older people during this critical time, including our new Community Hot Meal Service, our Welfare Check Service and our Digitally Connected Services. If you or someone you know could benefit from this help and support, then please do get in touch.

Many of our community based services can be delivered safely, at a safe social distance and all our staff have personal protective equipment such as face masks, sanitiser, and gloves.

Some services have been suspended because they cannot be delivered in a way that meets the current Government guidelines to avoid the spread of the virus. We are working hard to ensure people who rely on these services are supported.

If you are concerned or worried, feel lonely or socially isolated then please do get in touch on 01892 522 591.

Sandra Springett is the charity's Chief Officer:

"We are committed to helping older people in the community to stay safe and well in their own homes. We will prioritise those in the greatest need while protecting the safety and well-being of our staff and volunteers. We will continue to monitor updates on COVID-19 from the government and the NHS and act in accordance with their advice."

Our services for you

Expert advice

We offer you free, confidential and expert advice through our information service. If you need to know about social care, housing, scams or legal issues, we are here to help.

Dementia Day Care

Our new Dementia Day Care service combines a safe, enjoyable experience for them with an opportunity for you, the carer, to recharge your batteries for a day.

Our advocacy service is designed to support you to express your wishes. This might be a simple situation, perhaps to challenge a utility bill, or may be far more complex; perhaps you are being made unhappy by those around you.
