Food Train is a grocery shopping, befriending and household support service for older people assisting and enabling them to live at home independently for as long as they are able.
Our aim is to support older people to live independently at home. Our preventative services address the difficulty older people face getting their weekly grocery shopping, doing jobs around the house and the growing isolation that comes with failing health. We also aim to provide a wide range of supported volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and ability.
We envisage our organisation as a ‘one stop shop' for older people - by providing services or helping them access services to help them live independently at home for as long as they wish and are able.
- we will respect our customers right to dignity, choice and independence in their later years
- we will deliver our services with flexibility, openness and a ‘can-do' approach
- we welcome diversity in volunteering and will respect and value the contribution made by our volunteers
- we will develop and value working relationships with a wide variety of community partners
