Male/Female Greek speaking volunteers to visit elderly at facility_Daceyville, Botany, MaroubraSydney Multicultural Community Services Ltd
Sydney Multicultural Community Services – CVS (Community Visitors Scheme) volunteering program is funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and supported by the Department of Health. The program serves culturally and linguistically diverse residents, who may be isolated by limited family support, and language and cultural barriers.
We recruit, train and support volunteers to become Community Visitors who visit eligible residents in an aged care facility or at their homes. Visitors are matched with the recipient or resident according to language, cultural backgrounds, and possibly other interests throughout Sydney Metropolitan and the surrounding areas.
This is a unique and high-impact role that directly targets and reduces loneliness, enhances the life of the recipient with happiness, offers friendship and a sense of meaningful purpose, and provides valuable social support to isolated and vulnerable residents. In return, volunteers donating their time will be spreading warmth, happiness, and goodwill amongst those who are in dire need of social support. We value and highly appreciate our CVS visitors team.
