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 daily telephone calls to check on the wellbeing of people who live alone and are at risk of an accident
or illness that may go unnoticed.

The opportunity

To assist with a telephone support program, volunteers make daily phone calls to clients to provide reassurance to know that the client is safe and connected while living independently at home. Suits individual or corporate teams.

The impact

As a Telecross volunteer, you’ll provide peace of mind and be a friendly voice to people who are elderly or have disability. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
