We are updating our website design to improve the experience on our site.

Real Meals and Community Cafe

Since the beginning of lockdown, we have been working with local volunteers and food outlets to offer a Real Meals delivery or collection from our centre to more than 50 households - collected, delivered and served by a team of volunteers. The menus alternate between meals cooked by: volunteers; Nandine; Level Six Foods;  Fully Catered and Cool Caribbean.   

Beneficiaries include older centre participants, people referred by peer and partner organisation and others who feel they would benefit from a meal and eating with others.

We are currently making the transition from our collection and delivery service to our Community Cafe and are are continuing to:

·       offer a delivery and collection service to older people who are shielding or more nervous about coming out and/or eating together 

·       offer a sit-down service to bring our community together and reduce social isolation by eating together, for those who feel comfortable to do so

·       support the development of our team of volunteers

·       continue our culturally diverse meals provision through our partnership with local businesses

We are also developing our partnership work with referral and signposting agencies.

In response to participant feedback identifying a need for immediate emotional support, we set up a pilot structured safe talking space alongside our lunch service.
