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 daily telephone calls to check on the well-being of people who live alone and are at risk of an accident or illness that may go unnoticed.
We are looking for friendly and empathetic people to join our Telephone Support team in Port Pirie. Volunteers will provide a daily phone call to elderly people who are living alone or are socially isolated in order to check on their welfare. Volunteers must be able to work both on their own and in a team environment.
As a Safety Call volunteer, you’ll provide peace of mind and be a friendly voice to people who are vulnerable. 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 (08) 8633 8100.
