Call for Meals on Wheels helpers

MEALS on Wheels is looking for volunteers to provide help during lunchtimes.

The West Sussex County Council’s service, which is run by the WRVS, is looking for volunteer drivers to deliver meals between 11.30am and 1.30pm in their own areas.

It could be once a month, once a week, or every day, depending on how much time people have.

Meals on Wheels supplies a selection of hot, chilled or frozen two-course meals to adults in West Sussex, who may be leaving hospital or recovering from an illness, or need the meals as they can no longer cook for themselves.

As a delivery driver, volunteers would need to have their own car, and undertake a CRB check.

The service is also looking for people to accompany the drivers on their deliveries.

There are seven Meals on Wheels kitchens located throughout West Sussex:

Bognor Regis (also covering Chichester and the Witterings)

Crawley (also covering East Grinstead)

Mid Sussex (also covering Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Steyning and Henfield)


Worthing (including Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick and Fishersgate)

Rustington (also covering Arundel, Ferring and Littlehampton)

Petworth (including Midhurst and Pulborough)
