Meals on Wheels

The Royal Voluntary Service confirmed that they wish to stop the Meals on Wheels service nationally. In Dumfries & Galloway this service stopped at the end of September 2018.

There are no alternatives to replace the Meals on Wheels service like for like.   However, there are some organisations offering choices which you may wish to consider.
