Wangaratta’s Meals on Wheels clients are being looked after by staff unable to work in their normal roles during these challenging times.

With many of our services restricted and our volunteers placed on hold to limit the spread of coronavirus. Staff from our dental service are taking on the role of delivering meals to those in our community who are elderly, frail or have a disability. A daily service usually provided by our volunteers.

This new approach allows staff to stay actively involved in the provision of client services and perform a quick welfare check when safely delivering hot meals to those most vulnerable. While our volunteers who are mostly over 65 years are able to do the right thing and stay at home, knowing that their clients are looked after by people who are just as passionate about their welfare.
