More than 40,000 volunteers enable WRVS to run local services to support older people in communities all across Great Britain.
Our services give thousands of older people the opportunity and choice to live the life they want to every day and help them stay independent at home and active in their local community.
Meals delivery can be a vital service for those who want to stay independent home but can have difficulty with shopping, carrying heavy bags or cooking for themselves. The service provides friendly social contact and a regular check that they are safe and well.
Our shops, cafes and trolleys serve Royal Berkshire hospital patients, staff and visitors with the added warmth of friendly understanding volunteers. Money raised on the goods sold goes to fund much needed equipment and services. By buying goods in our shops, cafes and trolleys you are supporting your local hospital and community.
