Our Multicultural Volunteer Visiting Program is for seniors living in their own homes or in aged care facilities, and either experiencing or are at risk of experiencing social isolation.
Do you need a friend who can speak your language?
A volunteer can visit you wherever you are, at home or in a residential care facility. They can visit you at least once in a fortnight, at a regular time that suits you – for free.
Volunteers speak many languages and come from different cultural backgrounds.
They are trained and carefully matched to clients based on their interests, hobbies, background and availability. They must have a current police check and are supported by our organisation.
You might enjoy just chatting over a cup of tea, or a short walk. Almost any kind of activity can be a part of the visit – it’s up to you and your volunteer.
