Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much (Helen Keller)

Join the team!

We’re looking for volunteers to join our Community Services Scheme team (CVS). CVS helps break down social isolation and loneliness by connecting our volunteers with older people whose quality of life would be improved by positive engagement and companionship.

What do CVS Volunteers do?

As a CVS Volunteer you’ll visit a client in their home, or in an aged care facility and take part in activities with them like:

  • Having a cuppa and a chat
  • Listening to music
  • Playing card games
  • Going for walks
  • Video or telephone catch ups
  • Letter writing

For just one hour a week, you can make an amazing difference to someone’s life!

  What are requirements for becoming a CVS Volunteer?

  • Are you a ‘People Person’ who loves a chat?
  • Can you spare one hour a week for visits?
  • Are you reliable and committed?
  • Are you fully vaccinated?
  • Are you willing to complete a national police check?
  • Do you want to make a positive difference in someones life?

If yes to above we want to hear from you!

As a CVS Volunteer, you will be provided with induction and ongoing training, support and professional development opportunities.

How do I get involved?

What difference can I make?

Supporting someone who is isolated or lonely can make a great difference to their lives.

Sharing stories and providing companionship can reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It is also an opportunity for people to pass on their stories to family or loved ones.

What (the CVS) has given me is that sense that I’ve actually made a difference to one person’s life.
