Friendly Men Required as Community Visitors

The Red Cross is currently seeking men to visit elderly men in the local area who would appreciate a social visit.
Have a chat and laugh over a cup of tea, listen and reminisce, or talk sports or music- it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet a new friend and help someone stay socially connected.

The Role

As a Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) volunteer you have the opportunity to brighten someone's life.

CVS volunteers are matched with an older person who experiences social isolation and will benefit from your companionship and friendship.

The visits occur in peoples homes where you visit one-on-one with a person who receives a Home Care Package, or in an aged care facility.  CVS Volunteers visit at least once per fortnight. The visits are relaxed and social in nature, you might chat together, reminisce, listen to music, read the newspaper or play card games.

About You

You will need to be a good listener and communicator and will enjoy spending time with older people. We are looking for volunteers who are over 18 years of age and willing to commit one hour per fortnight, on weekdays or weekends with a minimum of 12 months commitment.

The Benefits

All volunteers will receive on-going support and guidance from Red Cross Program Officers in addition to training, information and resources. This is a rewarding opportunity to brighten the life of someone in your community

Opportunities are available in the Geelong and Bellarine Surf Coast areas.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply.

Enquiries can be directed to Lauren Carroll on 03 5223 8700
