What is available?
If you are finding it difficult:
- to go shopping
- cook your own meals
- if your carer is not able to cook you a meal in the daytime
there are a range of services that may help you.
London Borough of Newham no longer providers a meals on wheels service.
There are a number of services that can deliver hot or frozen meals to your home.
To help you in making a choice that best suits you this section has a list of suppliers who can cater to most dietary requirements.
How much will it cost?
You will have to pay for meals that are delivered to you. How much you pay depends on the meal supplier you choose.
Each supplier will provide you with a brochure with all prices clearly shown to allow you to make an informed choice.
How do I order my meals?
This depends on the meal supplier you choose, but normally you can order your meals:
- over the telephone
- by post
- by giving your order to a delivery driver.
What if I am unable to heat the meals myself?
If you need support in your home to prepare your meals contact us. An assessment of your support needs will be carried out.
We will ask you about the difficulties you have. If it is agreed that you are unable to heat the meals yourself, we can make arrangements for you to receive help in heating your meal.
