The program

Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross supports older people who live alone or who have few social connections, people with disability and people recovering from mental illness to help improve their wellbeing.

Red Cross provides a door to door transport service for people who are elderly or have disability and have no means of transport to non-urgent medical appointments or social outings.

The opportunity

Australian Red Cross are looking for enthusiastic people who enjoy travelling to join our Transport team in the Port Pirie & Mid North SA region. Volunteer Companions will accompany Volunteer Drivers on trips across the Port Pirie & Mid North Region. A current First Aid certificate is desirable. 

The impact

As a Transport volunteer, you’ll help improve the quality of life and wellbeing of people who are elderly or have disability by connecting them with services in their local community. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.

For more information, please see the volunteer role description or contact Claire Magliulo on (08) 8633 8100.
