NACC Meals on Wheels Week Press Release

The number of councils providing meals on wheels to vulnerable older people has dropped below 50% for the first time. 

Research for the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) reveals just 48% of authorities provide a service compared with 66% only two years ago. 

The NACC says under-investment puts the elderly at risk and will place unnecessary pressure on the NHS because meals services help prevent hospital admissions and extend the time residents can live at home. NICE has previously identified better nutritional care as the third largest source of cost savings to the NHS.
