Sustain call for Meals on Wheels case studies.

Sustain and the National Association of Care Caterers (NACC) are raising awareness about the potential Meals on Wheels services have to combat malnutrition, food poverty and social isolation in older people, as well as other wider benefits such as preventative support and local employment or volunteering opportunities.

In 2016, both organisations teamed up to produce a series of case studies on Meals on Wheels which looked into four different models of provision from across the UK. These services were selected for their positive approach to sustaining services in spite of shortfalls in care budgets.

The aim of this call for case studies is to collect and document information on more examples from across the country, which will be presented in a case study report launched during NACC’s ‘Meals on Wheels Week’ in November 2018. 

The deadline for submission is 17 September 2018

To participate please answer all the questions listed below and send your submission in Word format to Lailah Nesbitt-Ahmed (Food Poverty Campaign Coordinator, Sustain) Email: Tel:  02035596777
