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 makes sure older people have contact with others. Our teams 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 is serviced by centres in Crawley and Rustington. Please see the attached map below of what centre services which areas.

About the service

The service gives customers the option to have a chilled meal cooked for them in their own home by one of our service assistants, or drivers to cook the meal in one of our specially adapted vehicles. 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, and all carry identification badges.

You can contact the services by phone, post or email:
