Meals on Wheels (Hampshire)

About

If you live in the Hampshire County Council area, you can choose to receive Meals on Wheels through a service organised by the Council if you have certain needs.
You must be aged 55 or more, or be 18-54 years old and have at least one of the following: Dementia, a learning disability, a physical disability, a mental health issue, a history of substance abuse.
You must also meet at least one of the following: struggle to cook for yourself; have just come out of hospital; have a carer or relative who needs a break from cooking; are feeling unwell, either physically or mentally; have difficulty shopping for food.

Meal options include a two course meal (choice from a menu of starters, mains and puddings); a third course can be purchased for an additional cost; a Tea Pack can be delivered at the same time as the lunch time meal and offers a choice of sandwiches, snack and dessert.

If you are not eligible to receive Meals on Wheels, HILS may be able to provide you with meals. They can take private clients but there would be a higher cost involved. Contact HILS for more information.

Rushmoor Link Community Directory

Welcome to the Rushmoor Link community directory. This is the place to find very local information about activities, groups and community services. Whether you are looking for support, to improve your health and wellbeing, socialise more, get active, learn something new or find a place to meet, Rushmoor Link is a good place to start.

How to get started. Choose a category. Information is sorted into categories by service or organisation name. The directory focuses on what is available locally through statutory, community and voluntary organisations.

Next step. Once you have hit the category button, scroll through the results. You can use the keyword search to narrow down the information (e.g., dementia, Aldershot, football).

It’s a simple system packed full of information. We recommend you do not use punctuation marks like commas (,) or apostrophes (’).
