Here at MCM we know the power of a coffee and a chat, sharing the love of a good book, gentle walks and great company. The Community Visitors Scheme in Victoria gives volunteers an opportunity to positively change someone’s life through friendship.
We’re seeking volunteers who can commit to building a friendship with an older person, who may be lonely and isolated. We support elderly people living in Government funded aged care homes or in their own home and receiving a home care package.
Volunteers can participate in the scheme in 3 different ways:
The CVS aims to reduce loneliness for the elderly and offer more social support and connectivity to the wider community.
Volunteers are matched to a resident living in a government funded aged care facility, or be the recipient of an aged care package, for the purposes of companionship and friendship.
These roles are in the Northern and Western and Inner City suburbs.
Visit our Community Visitor Scheme information page for more details and for application criteria.
