Luncheon clubs - Wallasey

What does it do?

The Council has supported a number of luncheon clubs for older people for many years; as well as providing a welcome meal, they help reduce the social exclusion that many elderly people experience.

Luncheon clubs are organised by voluntary groups and provide an opportunity for people to meet, share a meal and socialise.

Many clubs offer activities and support in addition to the provision of a hot meal.

There are luncheon clubs in many parts of Wirral, most of which are operated completely independently of the Council. They can be approached directly without the need to go through social services.

There is no central or comprehensive list of clubs at the moment, although below, we have included a table of luncheon clubs that the Council is aware of, (though you will need to contact the clubs concerned before attending as information can change).
