A Meals at Home service which provides a lifeline for eight people in Ceredigion is being scrapped by the county council in a bid to save £18,000.

The move to do away with Meals at Home service was signed off by councillors as part of the wider 2024/25 budget.

The meals provided are prepared and delivered to the home address of service users, who are widely distributed across the county.

“The discontinuation of this service will make a saving of £18,000,” a report said.

“At the present time there are eight service users in receipt of this service, which has decreased from 14 during 2022/23.

“The service is high cost in terms of human resources to prepare and deliver the meals to a very low number of people of over a wide geographical area.

“The service users currently using the service are being contacted to seek their views and to outline other options.”
