Become a Meals on Wheels Volunteer

Our volunteers are at the heart of this critical service.
When you volunteer with Meals on Wheels, you are helping someone remain in their home. You bring practical and personal support in even the briefest of visits.
The nutrition from our balanced (and delicious) meals helps the vulnerable in our community with the physical strength they need to remain in their own homes. The care and friendship that you bring helps with mental health. And your visit also acts as a casual wellness check. Some of our volunteers have been able to save lives with a well-timed call to family or emergency services.

Who are our volunteers?

We have volunteers ranging from school age to retirees and from all kinds of backgrounds. Some people volunteer every day, others once a fortnight, or on an ad hoc basis around other commitments like work and family. We are grateful for all help with our deliveries and we can work around your needs.

What do our volunteers do?

We serve our customers in in different ways, which means there are lots of ways to volunteer. For example, for some clients, we deliver lunch from Monday to Friday between 11.30am and 1pm. For other clients, we deliver frozen meals once a week. We also offer a fortnightly shopping service for those who are housebound.

What our volunteers like about Meals on Wheels?

Meals on Wheels volunteers enjoy a social role that offers personal satisfaction and a strong connection to the local community. Our volunteers often remain with us for many years thanks to the strong relationships they build with customers and fellow volunteers.
