Meals on Wheels


​An affordable community service.

​This critical service is helping elderly and vulnerable residents to live independently. 

We deliver hot, nutritious meals that cater for a variety of diets and conditions. Your Meals on Wheels team member will happily plate your meal if you would like.

Our dedicated drivers build up a respectful rapport with clients. They provide a welcome and familiar face, and in some cases offer clients a lifeline to the outside world



The service offers a welfare check for all clients and maintains contact with Telecare Cardiff​​​​​​​​, Independent Living Services, Age Connect​​​​​​​​​​​ ​and other external agencies. 

Meals on Wheels is available for all residents of Cardiff and eastern parts of the Vale of Glamorgan including Dinas Powys, Sully, Llandough, Penarth and Wenvoe providing they meet the criteria.

Delivering food regularly means our Meals on Wheels team members get to know our clients really well. If we notice that something isn’t right then we can do something to help. 


Our staff are trained in caring for older people and have had specialist dementia awareness trainingEvery Meals on Wheels team member has had a police record check and will always be wearing their ID badge and uniform.

Should you not come to the door, or not be in the house when we come to deliver a meal, we will contact your family, friends or neighbours to make sure you’re okay.

Occasionally, we find our clients after they have had a fall or accident. If this happens, our team will stay with you until help arrives.

We work closely with the emergency services and trading standards. If the team are concerned for your safety we have existing relationships in place so that we can refer any issues to the correct team. 

The Meals on Wheels team work alongside Telecare Cardiff​​​​​​​​​​​​ who have a variety of sensors and alarms to make you feel safer in your own home.
