Community Visitors Scheme.

There are a lot of lonely people out there.

If you have time to spare and room in your heart for an elderly member of our community, Red Cross would love to hear from you.

“The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a free program where volunteers get matched up with an older person for social companionship and friendship on a weekly or fortnightly basis.  The Community Visitors Scheme is available to older people who live in an aged care facility or receive a home care package in their own home. 

“Australian Red Cross are currently seeking volunteers in the Geelong Region who would love to have a cuppa, share their life stories, or listen to music with an isolated older person.  

“To apply please follow the link: Volunteer opportunities | Australian Red Cross

“For more information about CVS please Email or phone Rae Nuss-Soeharto CVS Program Officer 0419 151 830.”
