Catering with compassion: Meals for the Forest of Dean elderly

Age Concern Forest of Dean

The group will expand their activities to reach more people in the area by recruiting further volunteers for their meals-on-wheels and befriending service. This will help older people to continue living in their own homes with independence and dignity in their later years, and reduce social isolation. They provide affordable and nutritious meals, regular checks on people's wellbeing, and advice and assistance when needed.

Location: Cinderford

Funding requested: £15,120
