Eligibility & Registration

Am I Eligible?

Meals on Wheels Central Coast’s meal delivery and social support services are available to Central Coast seniors, younger people with a disability and their carers. To be eligible for these services, you must reside on the NSW Central Coast and meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Aged 65 years or over
  • Aged 50 years or over and identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  • Have a registered disability
  • Primary carer of someone with a registered disability

If you do not fall into one of these categories, then we can assist via our sub company Coast Cuisine. This caters to everyone on the Central Coast and offers a delicious and affordable menu. Take a look www.coastcuisine.com.au or download a Coast Cuisine Menu.

How Do I Register?

If you are 65 years or over (or 50 years or over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders), we require a referral from the government organisation, My Aged Care. To be referred to Meals on Wheels Central Coast, please call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit the My Aged Care website by clicking here. Alternatively, you can complete the form below or contact our friendly staff on (02) 4357 8444, and we can simply arrange the referral on your behalf. The process typically takes up to 48 hours, however, we can commence our service to you in the meantime if needed.

If you are under the age of 65 (or under 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders) and living with – or caring for someone with – a registered disability, we generally require a referral from the NDIS. To be referred to Meals on Wheels Central Coast, please contact the NDIS on 1800 800 110, or visit the NDIS website by clicking here. Please feel free to contact our staff for more information on being referred to our service.
