Meals on wheels

In 2014, the Welsh Local Authority Caters Association (LACA) awarded our meals on wheels team 'Meals Direct' the prestigious title of Specialist Catering team due to the essential lifeline service that is provided to many people who are housebound or disabled. We deliver around 125,000 meals a year, to help people maintain their independence and provide a regular check to ensure that all is well in the household.
