Serving the community: the sustainability of lunch clubs in North East Wales and West Cheshire
Hanson, Margaret; Spencer, Eileen; Collis, Bryan (2014)


Support for community-dwelling older people is frequently provided by the voluntary sector through small community groups, but little is known about their sustainability. This paper, based on research in North East Wales and West Cheshire, focuses on lunch clubs and explores the factors
that affect their sustainability, from the perspective of the coordinators. The paper aims to share these experiences with voluntary organisations, commissioners, planners and policy makers who support small community groups within their provider network.
