The SCCA manages the Aged Care Volunteer Visitor Scheme (ACVVS), funded by the Australian Government. One on one home visiting program. The aim of the program is to provide companionship for older people at risk of social isolation. The anticipated quality of life improvements are increased self-esteem and independence, diminished feelings of depression and anxiety, and a greater connection to the wider community.
We are currently looking for Volunteers Home Visitors to visit Spanish-speaking residents in their home. Visitors provide older people with companionship and friendship to reduce the effects of social isolation. We will match volunteer home visitors with an older person based on location and similar interests.
If you would like to make a positive difference to an older person’s life and you are able to commit to one visit per week for a minimum of 12 months then please submit a Volunteer application form and email to [email protected] Alternatively you can contact the ACVVS Coordinator on 02 9698 3731
