What is it?

This toolkit has been developed as a partnership between key Emergency and Meals on Wheels (MOW) services to strengthen the emergency preparedness of vulnerable older people.

It supports home support providers to empower older people to make decisions about preparing for emergencies, by building on their knowledge of local risks, initiating and supporting individual discussions around what they can do to prepare, providing concise, practical information and linking in appropriate supports, if required.

It also builds the capacity of home support services, including local Meals on Wheels providers, to train their staff and volunteers on how to discuss emergency preparedness with their clients and make referrals to emergency services for assistance.
