Meals on Wheels

The Meals on Wheels service in West Sussex is delivered by the Royal Voluntary Service(RVS). The RVS is a charity that has helped older people stay independent at home and active in their local community for over 75 years.

The Meals on Wheels service not only provides essential nutritious meals but also vital human contact to older people across the county.

Royal Voluntary Service Meals on Wheels teams not only deliver much needed meals but also conduct Safe and Well checks. Without these vital services older people can be at increased risk of malnourishment, dehydration or acute loneliness.

RVS West Sussex Meals on Wheels are serviced by two centres, one in Crawley and the second in Rustington, please see the attached map below of what centre services which areas.

About the service

The service is based upon 3 options for customers. A chilled meal being served to the customer along with the option to have your meal cooked for you in your own home by one of our service assistants or drivers to cook the meal in one of our specially adapted vehicle. As your needs change, so does the service which is fully flexible to suit your requirements.

There are over 20 different hot meals to choose from, plus salads. Additionally locally produced afternoon tea packs are available which include a sandwich or a bap, together with a daily cake choice. These are delivered alongside the main meals to customers on a daily basis should you wish.

Deliveries are made by a mix of volunteers and paid drivers, all of which are checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously CRB), and all carry identification badges.
