Support with food shopping

Order online - home delivery or click and collect

Order and pay for your groceries over the internet. You can choose:

  • Home delivery - choose a time for your shopping to be delivered to your home
    • Delivery charges will apply; these are cheapest during normal office hours or with a 'delivery saver' scheme
  • Click and collect - order your shopping online and choose a time to collect it from the supermarket
    • This can be useful if you want to ask a friend, relative or support worker to collect your shopping for you, but don't want to take up too much of their time
    • There is a small charge for shopping under a certain amount (you could consider fortnightly shopping instead of weekly)

When you shop online:

  • it's easy to see special offers
  • you can charge your order on the day before your delivery/collection
  • you can save your list so you only have to update it next time

Some grocery websites include: 

Help using the internet

If you can't use the internet or don't feel comfortable, why not ask family or friends to help or order for you?

Age Concern Tyneside South can help with developing digital skills to help you to shop online, either at home (if you have internet connection) or through courses held at their offices.

Home delivery from your local store

Some shops will deliver your shopping to your door. This means you can do your own shopping without the worry of getting it home.

Milk and dairy deliveries

Your local milkman / milkwoman can provide doorstep deliveries of milk and other diary products.
