About this activity...
Urgently seeking volunteers to help tackle loneliness! (Perth metro)
Now that COVID restrictions have eased, we are desperately seeking new volunteers to join our Community Visitors Scheme (CVS).
Our CVS team helps break down social isolation and loneliness by connecting our volunteers with older people whose quality of life and self-worth would be improved by positive engagement and companionship.
Social isolation significantly increases a person’s risk of premature death from all causes, a risk rivalling smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity.
Sadly, older people in our community are the most likely demographic to experience feelings of loneliness and social isolation, particularly so through prolonged COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns.
Keen to change someone’s life? Join us now!
What do our CVS Volunteers do?
Face to face visits with clients at their home or aged care facility.
Go for walks, have a coffee, listen to music or play games with clients.
Or in the case of restrictions / lockdowns:
Telephone or video calls with clients.
Pen pal (letter writing to clients).
Volunteering is such an enriching experience. For just one hour a week, you can make an amazing difference to someone’s life!
