Vinnies Friendship Volunteer - Compeer

St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn
Logo for St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn

We are currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join our program. By becoming a Compeer volunteer, you'll receive ongoing support and have the chance to connect with other volunteers and program participants.

As a Compeer volunteer, you will be matched with an adult participant who is living with a mental illness. Our matching process takes into account factors such as age, gender, location, and shared interests or hobbies.

Once you're matched with a participant, you'll have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one friendship and enjoy social outings together. Whether it's grabbing a coffee, taking a walk, or participating in any other activity you both enjoy, you'll create meaningful connections and support individuals on their journey to recovery.

Compeer works closely with local mental health services and other health professionals.

Time commitment: 4 hours a month for 12 months
