Online grocery delivery

The availability of online shopping makes a great deal of sense for people who want to make their lives that bit easier by not having to travel or walk around a store for their weekly groceries, as well as for people with reduced mobility, or who have problems getting out to a shop on a regular basis.

Virtually all the major UK supermarket chains offer online shopping and delivery services, or a combination of online ordering and “click and collect”, below you will find links to all the big UK supermarkets to enable you to start to make your life a little easier:

You can also order frozen ready meals from other companies who will deliver to your door. You can also order meals for certain dietary requirements.

Helpful advice and guidance is also available for internet shopping, including information about protecting your privacy and internet security:
