Community Connections Companion


Imagine no-one calling or texting you for months. Imagine not seeing anyone for days on end. Our ageing population is increasingly isolated and lonely which can lead to boredom depression and inactivity. Having a volunteer visit once a week for a few hours for companionship or to help them re-engage in the community can bring huge benefits to their mental and physical wellbeing. Community Connections is a volunteer program with the purpose of reducing the premature decline in individual wellbeing caused by social isolation and loneliness in our ageing population. Volunteers will be matched with clients to support them to re-engage in community and provide companionship once a week for a few hours. At Silver Chain we support our clients to remain safely in their own homes having quality of life for as long as possible. You could be part of this wonderful team. Do you have great empathy with older people? Are you a good listener? Do you have a few hours a week to give? If you answered yes, then give us a call for a chat to find out more. Silver Chain values their volunteers and offer training and ongoing support in your role and engagement with other volunteers.
