Community Visitors Scheme Volunteer – Canberra ACT

Volunteers Needed

social workerDo you like spending time with older people, chatting, having cups of tea, reminiscing? Volunteers are needed to visit with residents in aged-care facilities. Many older residents experience loneliness or have limited contact with people other than paid staff. Your time with a resident could make all the difference in helping them stay connected to their community, news and events or the activities in their facility.

Volunteers are matched on a one-to-one basis with the residents and ideally visit with them for one to two hours on a weekly or fortnightly basis. You may also enjoy social outings together, visit places of common interest, go out for coffee together etc.

Suitable for people 18+, your involvement will enrich someone’s life and you could make new friends too!
