Meals on Wheels Deliverer (TD)

Currently we are seeking volunteers to deliver meals to help with a new service in the Caterham and surrounding area to residents on Monday, Tuesday and Friday

The elderly or disabled, those with memory loss, a learning disability or the housebound can struggle to prepare and cook a hot meal for themselves so rely on a hot meal brought to their door.

The delivery person will travel around the local area to each client's home and take the meal into the client. The client might need the lid of the meal removed or food cut up. Most of our clients delight in seeing a friendly face as yours might be the only one they see that day.

Ideally we are looking to form a team of volunteers, so this can be a flexible role - get involved every week, step in to cover holidays or support a couple of times a month.  

Meals are freshly prepared and cooked at The Westway and collected and delivered between 11.30-12.30pm.

Volunteers need to have use of their own car and be able to carry deliveries upstairs.  A two person household could pair up, one drive, the other deliver.

A DBS will be required, PPE provided and car mileage expenses can be reimbursed.  If you would like to be part of this new service please do get in touch.

What skills do I need?

Would like to fill a key role in supporting older people to remain in their homes. 

Enjoys meeting people. 

Has an outgoing and sociable personality.

Is customer focused and wants to support their local community
