Shopping for and preparing food

 Shopping for food can sometimes be a problem, whether this is because you can't get to the shops easily or if you find shopping physically difficult.

Community transport schemes can help you to get to local supermarkets and shops.

Shopping assistance services are run by many supermarkets where a member of their staff may be able to help you to shop and pack. You can also think about ordering your shopping online and have it delivered from many supermarkets and local stores.

Some Good Neighbour schemes can help you with your shopping.

If you do not have enough money for food you can ask to be referred to a food bank.

Food preparation

Equipment may help you if you find it difficult to prepare or cook meals, or find eating and drinking hard.

Independent Living Centres can help if you're not sure what equipment will help. This is a great way to see and try out equipment without any pressure. Some items of equipment can even be borrowed for free, to try at home.
