We call on Bolton Council to scrap the proposal to end meals on wheels.
Why is this important?
Bolton Council want to end the community meals service which delivers a hot meal to some of Bolton’s most vulnerable elderly citizens. Meals on wheels would no longer be provided by the council under new proposals leaving hundreds of local people affected.
Staff working in the service do not just deliver a meal, they check on the wellbeing of the elderly and alert other services if there are problems.
The service is cost effective and contributes to older people remaining in their own home.
