The Program

Red Cross supports elderly members of the community to be more independent, to improve their wellbeing and social connection, and to remain living in their local community. We do this by matching volunteers with an older person who lives in aged care or at home and experiences social isolation.

The opportunity

This role suits someone over the age of 18 who is a good listener and can commit to one hour a fortnight for a social visit to an elderly gentleman in Preston where you might chat together, reminisce, listen to music, read the newspaper or play card games.

The impact

As a Community Visitor, you’ll brighten the life of someone suffering vulnerability by offering them company and friendship. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
