Information for students and social researchers

In early 2009 we released what was, and still is, the most comprehensive data analysis of Meals On Wheels ever undertaken in Australia. The Meals Victoria Provider Survey has proven to be valuable resource to members, local government managers and students.

Just about anything you need to know about meals on wheels is contained within the Meals Provider Survey 2008. We updated certain components in 2011, and some of this information has been used by the committee for planning purposes, but the report itself has not been released to the sector or general public. Most of the information collected in 2009 is still relevant, the only difference being price / costs. There is a plan to work with government agencies and service providers on costing analysis in 2013.
