At 4 Voices we endeavour to respond to the incredible increase in social and digital isolation within our community. There are many unemployed people, many elderly people, and many girls and women who have experienced domestic violence and or homelessness – these people are in desperate need of connection.
Many Australians are adjusting to the shift towards digital connections – meetings on-line, medical appointments on-line, some school children are learning on-line. Many people cannot make that adjustment quite so readily because of affordability, access and/or capability. We are helping these people to connect. We chat with people – that’s what so many people miss - regular conversations. Some we help with digital skills, teaching them to use video calls, setting up emails, MyGov accounts, help them with online shopping, setting up their resumes, looking for work etc. We also connect people with other services, e.g. Centrelink, food services, housing, healthcare and counselling.
We would love your help if you are like to chat and have a genuine desire to help people in need, and are familiar with (not necessarily an expert in) computers and other technology. We are particularly looking for volunteers who are prepared to commit to a regular shift; as consistency and continuity of service is what we aim to provide to the vulnerable people we help.
We have an outreach service that operates at various locations in Brisbane South, Logan and Ipswich. Our van is fully equipped with laptops, a printer/copier/scanner, TV and Wi-Fi.
We currently need two types of volunteers: Outreach shift volunteers who provide social and digital support to vulnerable people on location. Commitment is 3 hours per week or per fortnight shift at a location with our van.
Blue cards are required but can be obtained once registered. These are free of charge for volunteers with 4 Voices
