We refer to the village often, as we like to think our meal delivery service can genuinely assist in providing some of the support you need from your village. But the word village is broad and can often make us feel even more isolated, wondering just where our village is. We have spent some time uncovering some of the resources and support networks available to women and men that you might not know about and you or a loved one might find helpful. We say so often 'ask for help' but the obvious response is 'but where?'.
