Corporate Volunteers – Join our fight against social isolation
Did you know the negative health effects of loneliness are now known to be as bad for your health as obesity and as damaging as smoking 15 cigarettes a day?
As people age, the chances of experiencing loneliness increase. Sadly around 40% of aged care residents do not receive any visitors, and many older people are living at home in complete isolation.
Does your organisation want to make a difference? Contact us about Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
Our Community Visitors Scheme connects volunteer visitors with older people who are socially isolated or lonely, whose quality of life would be improved by positive engagement and companionship.
Our team can arrange a group activity for your staff (ie. morning tea, BBQ lunch) to provide much needed social engagement and companionship to older people most at risk.
There are many benefits of corporate volunteering – from improving staff engagement and retention to team building and improved mental health and wellbeing.
