Eastern Volunteers Community Transport provides support to elderly and people living with a disability - assisting them to remain active and engaged with the community by transporting them to a range of appointments, social events, shops and providing social support and assistance! This allows our clients to remain connected with the community, in a safe and comfortable way. The result of this is that they are able to retain independence and remain in their homes for longer, living better and healthier!

As more COVID restrictions ease we are seeing a massive increase in demand for our great service as clients look to get involved in their communities again! As such we are looking at expanding our volunteer base to meet this additional demand! All operations are conducted in a COVID-safe way to ensure safety for drivers and clients alike!

Eastern Volunteers Transport Program complies with the Aged Care Standards and delivers a quality program ensuring our clients are at the forefront of the decisions we make. You will enjoy working with our fantastic clients, hearing their stories, and having a laugh! Ongoing training and support are offered as well as other volunteer opportunities for those interested!

The Role: We are looking for volunteers to accompany our clients during their transport, at the shops, during a coffee with their friends, or through other community engagement activities! All transport can be provided by Eastern Volunteer Drivers so being able to drive is not a requirement of this role!

This role is perfect for those looking to develop skills often utilized in the care & support sector, all while providing a much needed service to the community!

Requirements:

Clear communication Skills Be empathetic and patient Have a positive disposition Be able to assess risk and mobility changes in clients Available for at least 4 hours per week

If you are looking for a volunteering opportunity which is rewarding and provides a great service to the community, we would love to hear from you!
